Y is for Yellow Daffodils

Y is for yellow daffodils.  There is something about yellow daffodils that makes me happy.  I don't know if it is the color, or the fact that they are flowers?  I just smile when I see these flowers.
 I would love to just run and jump through this field of daffodils.  Wouldn't that be fun?
No other flower scrams spring like the yellow daffodill.  Here is a card I can't help but share.
The base of the card is Lemon Grass Cardstock with a Pool Play cardstock piece on top, slightly smaller.  I stamped the Pool Play cardstock with the Ink Splat ATS and Pool Play ink to create a background.   I tore the bottom of the piece to add texture.
I then took a strip of Lemon Grass Cardstock and ripped it on both sides.  I stamped the grass from the Backyard BBQ stamp set in Lemon Grass ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  I detail cut this piece out and then adhered it to the strip of Lemon Grass cardstock.
For the flowers, I stamped the Elegant Flower on Whip Cream Cardstock 14 times.  I cut 7 of them using the outside line and 7 using the inside line.  I then curled the edges if the little flowers to create the "cup" of the flower.  I adhered these "cups" to the larger flowers using foam squares.
The stems are strips of Lemon Grass Cardstock and tied piece of Lemon Grass Thread for the leaves.
I placed everything on the card front and then added then added the strip on top.
I stamped the sentiment from Little Big Greetings with Beach Breeze ink.
To finish the card I added a piece of Lemon Grass Thread around the whole card and adding Rainbow Drops to the centers of the flowers.  Enjoy!
