Digi Haven DT Card - Mother's Day or Floral

We have a new challenge for you over at Digi Haven, this fortnight our theme is "Mother's Day or Floral".  In the USA Mother's Day is in May, but if you're a Brit like me you can still play along by making something floral, just be sure to use a digi.  Our sponsor this time is My Graphico who are offering a digi prize for our winner.  The DT were lucky enough to be given an image to work with, I chose this pretty daffodil, one of my favourite flowers, I just love to see their cheerful faces after the cold of winter.
I printed the image quite large and got colouring with my Promarkers, my favourite daffs are the yellow ones with peachy orange trumpets so I couldn't resist colouring mine this way.
The papers are Papermania Capsule Collection in Sunshine to which I've added some apricot cardstock and faux stitching.  The sentiment is a foiled die cut from Craftwork Cards that I've embellished with gold gems.
The final touches are a ribbon and a glitter brad topped bow and lots of assorted gems and pearls in warm sunny colours.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
The Sisterhood of Crafters - April Showers Bring May Flowers
Deep Ocean - #51 - Let's Sparkle
Card Mania - #20 - Flower Power
Craft Your Passion - #161 - Floral Delights
