Daffodils in a teapot card

Here is another DT card made for 'Beccy's Place' again.
Who says daffodils have to be yellow lol ! I am back to
pink again,.... knew my papaya/peach phase wouldn't last.
I used this gorgeous digi image from Beccy called
'Daffodils in a teapot'. It's such a lovely image, it reminds
me of a  country cottage where this jug of daffs would be
sitting on a  pretty wooden shelf in a window.I coloured the
 image using Copics and Promarkers then softly chalked the
 background.I added a strip of card behind which I embossed
 with my roses folder then softly chalked the roses & leaves too. 
Computerized sentiment again softly chalked in pink. I cut the main
 card shape using my Nesties ( Curved Rectangles). My craft room
 is awash with 'stuff ' today. I had to make a card for a
 neighbour yesterday which had to be posted today. I never get
 much notice making cards for her. It had to be special  one ,
 for a 50th Anniversary, for a lovely couple too so I hear.Wow 50 years!!
I think she liked what I came up with though which
 is the main thing.I will post that card another time, enough to say I 
went with simple and classy in the end.Lovely hot weather
 here today, I am boiling, 24 C but very humid too, not that I am
complaining !!!! have a great day everyone.
ps. There is always a ps. these days lol. I am now making another
 DT card/cards for Beccy and this  new set of flowers/sentiments are amazing.
Can't wait to show you my cards. These will be so handy for so
 many occasions too.
