Here's my project for this challenge....
I really am a winter person but with the snow and cold temperatures, I am so ready for Spring.
So I wanted to welcome Spring with a beautiful Daffodil from SVG Cutting Files.
I love their files!!!
I cut extra layers of the flower and grass to give it a dimensional look.
The yellow & green Brazzill Basics paper comes embossed.
Isn't that Awesome?
 I added a green pearl to the center of my beautiful daffodil.
As for the base of my sketch, it is from Sweet Sunday.
I stamped "Happy Spring" which went so perfect with my
daffodil  and placed yellow enamel dots called Seafoam.

ENJOY!
 
I hope you will head over to Cut It Up and see what my fabulous DT sisters came up 
with for this challenge as well as entering the challenge yourself! 
We would love to see what you create!
