Yellow and Green

Did you know that it is St David's Day on 1st March and that traditionally a daffodil is worn to celebrate St David, well at The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge we have decided to ask you to make cards using Yellow and Green, the colours of the daffodil.

I chose to use The Crafty Purple Frog image Green Sea Turtle for my card.  The papers are also from The Crafty Purple Frog, they are from the Spring Floral collection and will be available in the shop shortly.  These papers complement The Crafty Purple Frog images beautifully but they are so stunning I can see myself using them for lots of different projects

The base card stock is some gold coloured card that I have had in my stash for some time now.  I layered the image onto a scalloped oval and embellished my card with some punched flowers and daffodils that I found in my local craft shop.  Full details of everything that I have used are listed below:

This is the inside of my card, you can also see the decoupaged layers:
