Fred She Said Daffodil Birthday Card

Can you tell that I have spring fever!!! This is just the beginning of what I have been working on. This is from the Fred She Said collection called "Spring Flowers" that you can find here. This is what I was talking about with my Copics. The light, the dark, and the shadow....trying to master that!!! Hope I can find some place around here to take a class in the fall.
Oh and let me tell you how much I love distress inking. I distressed this beaded spellbinders die with sage distress ink. I also distressed the frond leaves that I punched with my Martha Stewart punch. The branches and butterflies are also from Martha Stewart. The tag is a spellbinders fancy tags. The little flowers I got on clearance last year at Micheal's. The paper is a new release from K & Company. As you can see in this picture, I made an extra circle so that I can write my sentiment or include a picture of my family to the "Birthday" person. I like this little added touch!This card is 4-1/2" inches round and I created this custom box envelope to match. I am keeping the template because I have a feeling I will be making more of these cute little cards. Thanks for stopping by. I sure to appreciate your comments.

You are so talented. Your cards are truely works of art. I also like your idea about the extra bottom cicle so that you have a place for a saying or signature.
