Daffodil Cards and Funky Flower Card

This is what kept me busy yesterday amongst all my housework.  I really enjoyed the colouring in part of these cards as it is so relaxing.  The cutting out of the flowers and butterflies are not my favourite part of cardmaking. :-)

The Daffodil card I started with SU Bashful Blue card which folded into a gate fold shape.  I added SU design paper from the "Goodmorning Sunshine" collection.  The left hand strip I pleated and added to the card.  I then pin pricked all around the right hand edges of the flap and a line down the left hand flap.  Grabbed my gold pen and joined the dots to give a faux stitching appearance.  Next I added this beautiful Daffodil sticker (Sticker Store) to the a piece of white card.  I coloured the bright yellow with my sakura pen (Blue Edge Crafts) and the remainder with my SU inkspots and aqua brush.

The second card I started with a white pre-scored card (Blue Edge Crafts) and then a layer of SU Design Paper.....sorry don't know the name.  The flower is from the SU Playful Petals set which I stamped and coloured with my SU Inkspots and aqua brush then cut and layered.  The top part of the flower is my happy mistake that I was lucky enough to be able to create again.  I coloured the flower then went around the edges with a brown marker then covered the petals with Kindy Glitz.  The Kindy Glitz makes the brown marker bleed.  I layered the flower up with 3D Foam tape and finished with a green bling in the centre.  On the right side I have used SU card and design paper and topped with a leaf from the SU Playful Petals set which I coloured with Certainly Celery.  Topped these leaves with cute little clear glitter butterfly stickers (Sticker Store) which I had attached to yellow paper before cutting out.
