The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - 23 February 2012

 It is time for another challenge at the Crafty Purple Frog Challenge.   For this challenge it is in honour of Saint David's Day (Saint David's Day is the feast day of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, and falls on 1 March of each year. The date of 1 March was chosen in remembrance of the death of Saint David. Many people will wear a daffodil to celebrate Saint David) and the challenge is to use use YELLOW AND GREEN of the colour of the daffodil.
For my card I have used the Crafty Purple Frog pyromage image called Ivy Mermaid and I have also used one of the new Crafty Purple Frog spring background papers which will be released shortly - they are really really yummy!!!  I have just done some simple matting and layering, inking the edges as per normal.  The flowers are all printed from a My Craft Studio Click-Print-Go CD and they've been inked as well.  The image is matted on a Spellbinders scalloped oval and I added some lace for a bit of dimension and interest.  The card is finished off with some peel-off circles for the centres of the flowers, Craftwork Cards sentiment and a ribbon bow.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
