 Daffodil - Daffodils are my second favorite type of flower (tulips are my fave,) so I was thrilled to see the daffodils in this paper pad by K and Company and just knew that I wanted to use is soon.

Sunday Sketch and Stamp's sketch gave me the perfect excuse to  play. Take a look at this week's sketch.

I decided that it was perfect for a Criss Cross card. I haven't done one in a while, but they are so much fun to give and receive.
 We are sponsored by Vintage Milly, which is a new one for me, so I was excited about getting to play with one of their images.

This one is called Festival fun and she is such a cutie pie. She has great locks to color.

I colored her with Copic's and added just a little bit of Stickles to her bodice and bangle bracelet. We all know that we girls like our bling.

The image was cut with a SB and I melted the white tulle behind the image. I like how it gives it such an interesting look. There, yet not very much.
 My flowers are daffodils that were trimmed off a silk bush and the lilac flowers were in the wedding section at my local craft store. I like to shop the wedding isle; as they have the most beautiful things in that area.
I even finished the inside of the card. I don't do that very often, but I was motivated to this time.

I used some of my treasured scrolled ribbon to make a pulley. The punch is EK Success. I also used my kiwi pearl pen to make the tiny pearls.
