Sweet Sketch for Spring

I started playing along with the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge, and another fun sketch indeed! I'm thinking spring, even if my colors seem to tell you otherwise! The daffodils are from Flourishes' A Year in Flowers 1 set. I stamped it on watercolor paper and used reinkers to color it - something I don't do very often and really need to practice! After cutting and embossing with an oval nestie, I sponged saffron ink along the edges. My colors of cardstock are Basic grey, Soft suede, So saffron, and Old olive. The DSP is Queen Bee by Pink Paislee (just got it from Jacksonbelle Embellishments). And the embellishments are from my March Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions. Thanks for stopping! Have a wonderful weekend!
