Here is my "Fred She Said" creation:

Thank you so much for allowing me to share with you my Fred She Said creation. This image is the new "Daffodil" digi. Don't you just love Daffodils. They are the first sign of spring when they show up in your garden. The bright yellow color just makes you smile and turn your face into the sun just like they do!!!Let me tell you a little bit about my card. It is called a "Folded Paper Frame" technique. You can find the directions here for this fun and very pretty way to display your images. By looking at this, you can see that I like to do lots of layers. So on top of my frame I cut apart a felt coaster that I found earlier this year in the $1 bin at Micheal's. They under that, I placed a fan from the Martha Stewart deep cut border punch-you can see they are repeated again under the loopy around the page punch.
The punches have been repeated again on the inside of the card with more daffodils. There is stickles on the yellow felt trim, as well as all the daffodils and the edge of the folded frame. The Spellbinders lattice pendant was used to frame the daffodil image on the inside of the card. The envelope is made from a 6 x 6 kit available at the Priscillastyles Store. Hope you have found some inspiration here to make one of these new Fred She Said designs for yourself!

My special code word is: THE
