Crafty Ann's Challenge #61 - Spring into spring

The time has come for another challenge over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.  This fortnight the challenge is "spring into spring" so Crafty Ann is looking for spring or Easter themed projects.
Last year I decided when printing out digital images I would print out two of the same image because I was making a mess of so many and then having to re-print.  Now that I have two images printed out I rarely make a mistake so I then end up with extra cards.  This means I have not one but two cards to show for you today.  I have used Crafty Ann's new digital image of a vase of daffodils.  My favourite flowers are roses, followed by poppies and then followed by daffodils so I had to use this image.  I have coloured in with Promarkers, die-cut the image and chalked around the edge with a chalk ink pad.  The backing papers are all abstract papers from Crafty Ann's digi shop so I went for the colours yellow, orange and yellow to be spring-like.  The cards have been finished off with a sentiment, bow, Marianne Designs die-cut butterfly and ribbons.

Here are both cards side-by-side so you can see the subtle differences:
I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

Cupcake Inspiration - Photo inspiration
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Totally Stampalicious - All flowers
Kaboodle Doodle - Show us some green
Digital Tuesday - Think spring
2 Sisters - Spring colours
I love Promarkers - Anything goes
Marianne Designs Divas - Spring into spring
Always Something Creative - Spring awakening
The Poodles Parlour - Anything goes
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days - Add a sentiment
Delicious Doodles - The wonder of life
Sparkle's Forum - Mother's day or spring

I usually print an extra image or two also to color while I figure out what colors I like best, great idea to use them to make extra cards! Thank-you for playing along at Digital Tuesday Challenge!
