Yellow Crocuses

If you’re looking for my A Day for Daisies post just scroll down :)  

I have a pretty little winter treat for you on this Power Poppy Friday.  Ever since I coloured up the Camellias in tones of grey and peach, I’ve wondered how the lovely little flowers in the Winter Pick-Me-Up set from Power Poppy would look in a similar style.  So, today I have yellow crocuses blooming from the winter snow.  

After adding some warm yellow to match these papers from MME Lost and Found, I die cut them with a lovely Spellbinders die (Radiant Rectangles) from XPress It Blending Paper, framing it out with Vellum.  

I’ve also added a vellum sentiment overtop using our Poinsettia stamp set and stamping in VersaFine ink for a really sharp impression.  The accents are seam binding and black faceted gems to keep it simple and classy.  

Now pop on by the Bloom Brigade girls playing along today and be sure to join in our Power Poppy Peep of the week contest.  All the details are on the Power Poppy Blog HERE.

This is sooo pretty and delicate. Isn't it funny how crocuses look fragile but are one of the hardiest plants! Truly enjoy the grey palette with the yellow flowers.

Beautiful, the yellow and grey are even better. I think I am gonna need to do that this week myself. The vellum adds a soft elegance. Beautiful girl!

Oh, Christine, I love these colors together! And I agree with Leslie about the papers...perfect and a wonderful combination, especially with the vellum! I have thought about using vellum and then so easily really adds a lovely touch! You've really made a delicate beauty with these sweet flowers! Warm hugs, and I continue to pray for your healing!
