Daffodil Bear

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Spring Flowers
And here is my card for your inspiration:
This sweet card is going to be my birthday card for my mother.  As her birthday just passed a couple days ago, this little bear with his daffodil is perfect!  Daffodils are starting to show their pretty faces here in the Northeast.  I added a fancy die cut, some mulberry paper, a few pearls and two pieces of ribbon that were in my bits and pieces stash.  Oh yeah, the patterned paper has been in my stash forever!!  I really thought I was going to use yellow patterned paper but it was just too much of a contrast with the dark green ribbons.  I think I ended up liking the green better anyway, it feels very fresh and springy.

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Heather: thanks for sharing your pretty spring theme birthday card at PPCC blog #426 challenge week! I'm glad you said in your posting that the ribbons were dark green because I thought they were black; but whatever color they are they help ground all those pastels from being too sweet. So good decision! Your mom will be delighted! Becca ~DT
