The Daffodils are in Bloom...

There was a lot of work that went into this project,
but I had so much fun trying to create it.
I wanted to make something that not only represented spring,
but also the Easter season.

I started with an invitation wrap.
I added a punched scalloped edge complete with lace
and adhered it to the slant.
The daffodils and hummingbird are from Art Nouveau
and the embossed circles are fron a Fiskars punch.
The hummingbird's wings are popped 2x
and small gems were added to the stamens of the flowers.

Instead of an invitation, a card was made to coordinate with
the Springtime scene on the wrap.
All cuts on the front of the card are from Heritage.
The frame is embossed and inked -
The flowers are popped 2x -
and larger square gems were added to the corners for elegance.
A scripture which says;
Jesus said to her,
"I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in me will live,
even though he dies;
and whoever lives and believes in me
will never die.
John 11:25-26

 is added to the inside of the frame
to finish off the front.

Adding an inside sentiment would make this
perfect for an Easter, sympathy, get well, or thinking of you card.
I love the end result!
I may even use this as my "Thank You" card to our
Minister for performing the Baptism Ritual for our grandbaby.
