For the second week in a row, we are showcasing a yellow, for the Colour Creations blog hop.  Last week, Crushed Curry was a challenge for me ... but Daffodil Delight, this week's colour, is a much brighter, cleaner, yellow that just screams "happiness". 🌞

I started the creation of tonight's card by choosing a Basic White die-cut cone flower, cut using Harvest Dies, that was already on my desk.  Using my Stampin' Blends markers, I coloured the petals in Daffodil Delight, the stem and leaves in Granny Apple Green, and the flower head/centre in Crumb Cake.  Also on my craft table was a Basic White piece of card that I had embossed with a Thanks & Hello Embossing Folder.  I love how these "leftover bits", with a few additions, came together to make this card:

I mounted the embossed white panel onto a piece of Daffodil Delight card, that I had stamped repeatedly with a stamp from Dragonfly Garden.  I stamped the flowers in Daffodil Delight ink, and sponged the edges of that piece with the same coloured ink.

Using a Seasonal Swirls Die, I cut a wreath from Granny Apple Green card, and snipped off the holly leaves.  I added the cone flower to the wreath, and decorated it with a bow made from Black & White Gingham Ribbon.  This complements the black stamped sentiment, and the Matte Black Dots I added to the tiny yellow flowers.

The sentiment, from Dragonfly Garden, was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White card, and cut out using a label from Meadow Dies.

I die cut a few glittery flowers, using a Pierced Blooms Die, and Ombre Specialty Paper (that is Mango Melody, but that has colour gradation allowing it to complement Daffodil Delight nicely).
