absc19 - Spring Daffodils

Hello...I hope everyone had a delightful Easter.  It was a blustery and cool one here but we all enjoyed a good time and after a wonderful Church service Coleen was able to do her Easter Egg Hunt outside (although she had to wear a coat).  She sure had a good time.
It's PRIZE week here again and this time Andrea is offering up some wonderful (ribbon)as the prize.  I believe it's a packet of all 6 patterns of the gorgeous flowered ribbon shown at the above link.
Now I must admit that I find this type of a sketch difficult.  I don't know why but for some reason it's just not one I'm comfortable with.  I decided to give it a try anyway and hope you like what I came up with.
My card base is: Bermuda bay layered with Certainly Celery and some DP (retired SU-Haiku).  I stamped the Daffodils from, (Flowers for You) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with SU Markers.  Then I added some sparkle with Spica Glitter Pens and used the color spritzer tool and also distressed the edges with ink.
The Yellow squares were embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder on Crushed Curry cs.  I added some of the new Annabelle Flowers and  Pineapple Sprinkes from Annabelle Stamps.  The Sprinkles on the sentiment panel are Lime.

Be sure to check out the other DT members blogs to see how they used this sketch.  Their names and links are on my sidebar. Remember you have 2 weeks to give this sketch a try and leave a link to your creation on the Annabelle Stamps blog.

Have a wonderful weekend. Here is a picture of Coleen in her Easter Dress
