This is the second flower from the stamp set that I won a few weeks back on Di's blog and have been itching to use it ever since. A centre fold step card as I like making these and you can just keep layering up and covering every available inch!.  There is an easy tutorial which you can find here for cutting this shape.
The backing papers are by Correen Silke called Sunday Gardens and came from here. Doily, lace,ribbon and  pearls are from my stash. I have used Distress markers and pearlescent chalks to colour the daffodils and an Xcut nesting die to cut the shape out. The sentiment is a clear stamp by Wow.
A side view which shows the papers a little clearer as the doily covers up quite a large area and you can also see the step feature. The inside of the card also had a matching paper from the same set.  Below a close up of the daffodils. The pearlescent chalks give a lovely
sheen to the image.
