Sweet Daffodils...

 Welcome blogger friends....It's Cinco De Mayo!

It's also time for a new challenge at the Double D.   The weather is warming nicely and the spring flowers have been blooming here for some time.  We are celebrating the season over at the Double D and want to see your projects with flowers.  Our topic is "Flowers of the Month", January through June.  Choose your flower from the mood board photo/list and share your creation with us by Sunday, May 16th for the chance to be one of our creative winners or the random winner of the prize below.

Memory Box Ragged Daisy

Your inspiration... 
January - Carnations or Snowdrops
February - Violets or Primrose
March - Daffodils, Jonquils, Narcissus
April - Daisy, Sweet Pea, Gerber Daisy
May - Lily of the Valley or Hawthorne
June - Rose or Honeysuckle

This was an easy choice for me since my birthday is in March and I love Daffodils!!
Daffodils have the loveliest scent and truly speak of spring.  This simple, stamped image was created using clear EP, paints and a water brush for this watercolor effect.  I used die cuts to make the frame and added dimension with foam tape.  The sentiment is also a die cut matted with a darker color for a silhouette effect.
