I love daffodils, they are my favourite flower, they are a national flower of Wales and an emblem for St David's Day (1st March).
I'm not Welsh, although my Grandmothers family do originally come from Wales, but I was born on St David's Day so i've always associated daffodils with my birthday too.
And right now I have 2 big vases of  beautiful daffs in my lounge and another on my kitchen window sill :)

So naturally, when I saw this image at From The Heart Stamps, it just had to be bought...

I decided to make my card using this weeks I {heart}sketches challenge.
Here's the sketch...

But starting this week, they are sketches with a twist. This week we are asked to add real or faux stitching.
I used the sketch AND the twist, I paper pierced around the edge of the image and dragged a white gel pen through the holes for my faux stitching.
The paper is by Prima, from a pad called Believe. The sentiment is computer generated.

I'd also like to enter this card at:
