A little sunshine on a rainy day...

I love this new set, Fabulous Florets, from the summer Mini, but struggled with using it.  I knew that I would, because it's not the style I usually work with, but I had to try! Bright colors and line images don't usually lend themselves -- or me! -- to a vintage look.  I like the end result, though!

The Daffodil Delight was made with Melanie Schulenberg's gorgeous paper roses tutorial and the edges are sponged with Tangerine Tango.  The small "brads" in the corners of the main floral layer and accenting the sentiment are punched out using the 1/16" handheld round punch and glued one.  The leaves were stamped in Garden Green, then cut out -- this was the time that I really wished that I'd bought the Wild Wasabi ep!

Love this card. I haven't used my Pom Poms yet, but you have inspired me. Thanks
