A Year In Flowers: Daffodil


Hi everyone!  The name of this patterned paper "Gentlemen's Bet" inspired me to make this really elegant card!  I don't know why but I always get a chuckle over some of the names they come up with for patterned paper.  This patterned paper had me digging out my silver rhinetones... after all, diamonds are a girl's best friend, LOL!  


The Daffodil image highlighted on today's card is from the A Year In Flowers I stamp set by Flourishes.  I paired it with this gorgeous Gentlemen's Bet patterned paper from the Prima Marketing Cavalier Collection.  To embellish the card I added some white organdy ribbon and bow, black button threaded with DMC White and some silver rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
