Spring daffodils . . .

"Look at the blue sky, hear the grass growing beneath your feet, inhale the scent of spring." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

I love the newness, hope and beauty of Spring! Don't you?

The Spring weather has definitely arrived here - April showers and all that comes with 'em - soggy shoes, wet umbrellas, new grass and a clean start. My kids went back to school today - Spring break is over, whew - so the earlier bedtimes last night gave me a little extra time to create! Yay! I couldn't resist using this little girl image, she's just perfect for Spring, as she plays with her kitten among the daffodils.

She has been meticulously cut out using the paper tole technique to make her 3 dimensional. The scalloped borders are cut with my nesties, the dew drops have glossy accents and as usual, I can't keep my hands out of the glitter, so this card has touches of sparkle everywhere! I layered some pretty pastel textured cardstock (one dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder) and a li'l designer paper from DCWV and stitched them together with my sewing machine, then some half pearls added the finishing touch.

Isn't she precious?!? Let me know what y'all think?
