Welcome back to Day 3 of the fabulous April Release at Power Poppy!  We’re fully in spring mode with today’s gorgeous set Daffodils....Today’s card might just be my favourite of this week! 

Not only are daffodils really meaningful to me, but I also REALLY happen to love Grapevine Hyacinths, and Marcy put them all together in this gorgeous little bundle of spring bouquet.  Those tiny little beads of purpley blue hyacinths that grace the front of my flower bed each year just make me smile.  They are so delicate and vivid and a gorgeous reminder that winter is over!  

I love how this bouquet adds so much to this stamp set that includes the previously released digital Dancing with Daffodils image!  I also think that the bright yellow of the daffodils pairs beautifully with the purpley-blue of the hyacinth, so that’s where I went with my Copic colouring. 

I accented with some lovely yellow polka-dotted washi tape, a stamped circle and some enamel dots, and then placed it all on this cornflower blue layer that I scored with my Scor-Bug and Scor Pal in a diagonal pattern.  
Such a perfect sentiment too, for so many occasions.  

Here’s the Copics I used for all that juicy colour.  

I know you’ll find some amazing inspiration from the rest of the Bloom Brigade today...

Oh, Christine, these are juicy colors and so beautiful! Wow, I love that blue!! What beautiful coloring (as always...amazing), and I love your layout and thank you for the reminder about using my Scor-Bug...just enough embossing to add some nice interest at the bottom. Really beautiful card, sweet friend! Hugs!

I love how you rested the bouquet on its side like it was just brought in from the garden. Gorgeous and vibrant colors on this one, Christine!
