Club Scrap March Sketch

Still trying to clean my craft room, but:

This time I found some left over papers
from Club Scrap's Daffodil's kit.
I thought it was perfect for the March sketch
on the Club Scrap Chat Facebook group.

This is the sketch and I had fun making two cards
and used the Daffodil rubber stamps as well.
Here is card #1 .
The splatter strips came with the kit.
It is hard to see, but the brown strip
has been embossed with a basket embossing folder.

The stamp is colored with aquarel paint.
The sticky pearls are from my stash.

For card #2 I created a same background
but used another stamp.
I stamped the image with green ink
and colored it with aquarel paint.

The orange splatter are a stamp from the
Daffodil kit, but the sentiment is from the Club Scrap
Shibori kit. Here I used some sticky
gemstones from my stash.
Here are the daffodils in my garden.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
