D2D Sneak Peek

Well, it is officially Thursday, and tonight the new Designed2Delight image will be emailed to those who played in the Delightful Inspiration challenge last week.  Starting last Thursday Faith allowed us to start sneak peeking the release at 12:00 am on Thursday.  The Card Ideas blog has some other samples for you to see and you still have all day to complete your card with last week's image to earn this one.

This week's image is "daffodil". Isn't this little vase of blooms so pretty? As I mentioned before, they are one of my favorite spring flowers. My favorite variety are the ones with the orange centers, so that's how I colored these ones.  I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch #82 for the card design. I'm also entering Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #18 (RRR18) which is a spring theme. What could be more springy than daffodils?

I printed off three sets of this image.  I popped up the whole flower first, then I popped up just the flower centers and hit them with a touch of stickles.  I have this little close up to give an idea of the dimension, it looks pretty cool in real life.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope you are having a great week.
