I Love Buttercups!
Jackie Topa made with the Build a Blossom punch. Since I love buttercups so much I had to try my hand at CASEing Jackie's card.
The base of my card is quite a bit different but I used her design for the actual buttercup. She called it a daffodil as I'm sure most people do but I grew up calling them buttercups so that helps me keep those great childhood memories alive.
This buttercup uses one of the largest scalloped petals from the punch and 6 of the largest leaf punches. I sponged a bit of More Mustard around the leaves very lightly before assembling the flower. I hand-cut the leaves and couldn't resist putting a little pearl in the center of the flower. The DSP is from the Springtime Vintage pack and the birthday stamp is from a free stamp set available during Sale-a-Bration.
The picture of my first buttercup was taken several days ago. Now I have lots of buttercups blooming but it is too rainy to take pictures. We got another 3 1/2 inches today after getting 6 inches last Wednesday. So glad that wasn't snow, I wonder how many inches that would be!
