Potted Daffodils

I have many great retired and non-retired stamp sets that I have collected but have not played with much or even at all.  (Yes, I am a stamp hoarder.  There, I admitted it!)  This is one that I have used once, maybe twice before.  I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and picked the paper colors from that, which are colors in the current ColourQ Challenge #145.  I used last weeks SCS Sketch Challenge 392.  The doily in the background is a Cricut cut out.  The frame for the image was dry embossed and then sponged with matching ink.  I left the sentiment off to keep it generic for whenever I may need a card for any given occasion.  The last generic card I made I used for a sympathy card a few days later.  I hope that will not be this one's fate.

Below is a picture of the SN colors I used.

Stamps:  Always in My Thoughts
Paper:  WW, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, DP
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Cricut Ornamental Iron II, Cuttlebug, Nestabilites
