Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #41

This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down to see my first post.

Today, I am participating in a challenge from Mark's Finest Papers.  It is to use self-made flowers on your card.  Well, I looked in my stash and just happened to have a few crocheted flowers I made a while back.  This one caught my eye because it looked like a daffodil, and I am really looking forward to spring.  Probably because it is snowing right now.

I died the center of the double flower with a daffodil marker after I had wet the flower.  This made the ink bleed into the center, leaving the outer edge a little darker in color.  I hand drew the stem and leaves with a marker, so there isn't any stamping involved on this card.  The scalloped panel is up on dimensionals.

Stamps - none
Paper - Daffodil, Wasabi, GKD PL white
Ink - daffodil and wasabi markers
Accessoried - hand crocheted flower, ticket corner punch, Nestabilities scalloped rectangle, Big Shot, ribbon, dimensionals, half pearls

I'll be back later with more cards.  I've been negligent in posting this week.

I love your crocheted daffodil! I tried to crochet one of those flowers once and decided I'd have to buy them! LOL, it was a disaster! Can't wait to see the real daffodils!

Gorgeous crocheted flower, Karen! And yes, I have been hoarding the ones you sent me so long ago! Must pull them out and USE them, but gosh, they're so pretty!

And of course I love the clean and simple setting for your pretty flower. Thanks for playing with Speedy's Friends!
