Spring Has Sprung

Hi Crafters,

A very dismal and dreary day here in Norfolk and after the sunny weekend I'm so ready for some regular sunshine and warmer days now.
So I thought I'd share one of my recent projects which shouts Springtime!

Both the watering can and daffodils are a Silhouette Cameo cut file
and I thought this would make a nice Easter display on my stall when selling my Easter cards.

Just a little Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade & Wild Honey to define the petals was all that was needed. I popped the daffodil heads on to plastic stirrers for stems so to cover the round, flat tops I added a Stampin' Up flower punch in green card for the sepal.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts Challenge - #455 Handmade Flowers

Thanks for joining me today and see you again tomorrow for my DT post for the new challenge at Passion For Promarkers.
