Daphne's Daffodil

     This wonderful, sweet image is the FB Progressive Challenge freebie from ArtbyMiRan.  She became a birthday card because I'm stocking up on those.  No particular person in mind for this one but it will probably go to my sister-in-law who has the next family birthday coming up at the end of this month.  :-D

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image in lovely, spring greens and then used my latest Cheery Lynn framing die to cut it.  I backed it with pale green CS so that the frame element would be better showcased.  I added the leafy die cut, also a Cheery Lynn die, and punched flower petals for the white flower, adding a sparkly sequin to the center.  Green isn't my usual color choice for a monochromatic card but I rather like it on this one.
