Daffodils for Easter

Not a prayer of putting my sun chair out today - back to the fleecy jumpers and the heating is on x Hope you are all enjoying the weekend., had a fairly busy day so tomorrow is playtime - yippee.
On with todays card

 I spent hours looking for this stamp set a few weeks ago and could not find it anywhere then whilst sorting some drawers last week there it was - in my christmas drawer, don't remember putting it in there lol.

I had a real good play last night with this one and just did not know where it was going when l started - over the last couple of days l have seen some gorgeous cameo embellishments so this inspired me to get out the shrink plastic and scalloped oval nestie to make this embellishment which l coloured with tombows and sekura pens (not used these for years) l put some stickles around the edge, l cut a piece of vellum to just lift the backing a bit. I have used a script embossing folder then distressed in bundled sage. The main image is coloured with copics and prisma pencils and a touch of stickles. Used a Pearl pen on butterfly and swirl.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
