Daffodil - Hello blogging friends. It is time for my double DT card. I love it when I can hit both of them at the same time!

The challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is to use a super cute image. How easy is that with so many cute images out there. We are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments. They have oodles of cute images. Take a look at their's here. The prize for this challenge is 3 digi stamps.

The challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog is D for daffodils. I love daffodils, but my very favorite flower is tulips, another spring flower! I guess I just like spring. And we have had a gorgeous spring day here in Oklahoma today. It had been cold earlier in the week, but I am hoping that the cold is behind us for this year. Not that I am complaining. We had a very mild winter.

My papers are K and Company's Meadow. Did you notice the yellow paper has daffodils? But look at the red paper, it also is covered in daffodils!

My flower is Pizzazz Aplenty's mulberry flowers. I added the coiled wire and the leave is SB and I hand shaped it with a pinching motion.

My image is Crafts and Me daffodil Spring. Isn't she cute? I love her hair with her coiled braids on the sides of her head.

I can not figure out if she is a fairy, a mermaid or just a non mythical human. The area that I colored peach, could be a bow or fairy wings, the bottom part looks like mermaid flippers to me, but I suppose it could be a skirt as well. Then we have her among the daffodils. It just don't see a mermaid  in a flower bed. What do you think?

I colored her with Copics and added a little Stickles to the butterfly in her hair, on her dress/fin and on the daffodils. I also added some liquid pearls to the pearl trim on her top and belt.

The bow was tied using my Bow Easy and the sentiment is SU; as is the 2 punches that house the sentiment. I added a few Dew Drops to the sentiment and the top of the card.
