Edwin with Daffodil

I was chosen as one of Top 5 in the Magnolia Down Under Challenge "Happy Birthday to Us". Thank you so much for choosing me and for a lovely challenge as always!  **Update**

Hi everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
I've made a card using Magnolia's Edwin with Daffodil from Little Easter Collection 2013. I'm going to enter this into Magnolia Down Under Challenges. This week's theme is 'Happy Birthday to Us '. Very very Happy 4th Birthday lovely MDUC!!!

The image is stamped with Archival Ink coffee on watercolor paper and coloured with Distress Markers & Distress ink pads as always, and added sparkle with stardust stickles on the Daffodil. I painted the metal corner, flowers and the paper edges with Gesso.  The gorgeous paper is also Magnolia's same line. This card is shaped with a GoKreate die, called Large Frame Frilly #7. The tiny butterflies are cut out with a Martha Stewart corner punch.
