ODBDSLC235 Inspiration Challenge

I am loving the show of daffodils right now.  And they are deer resistant.  :)  My tulips do no fare so well so instead of using tulips like the ones in the Inspiration Challenge photo this week, I went with daffodils that were fussy cut from Daffodil Corner.  And such a bright yellow calls for a happy little red umbrella.  This was cut out of red card stock using the Umbrella Dies.  I used the smaller pieces of the umbrella dies to mask and sponge depth for the umbrella.  I also colored the handle black and added a touch of white gel pen for some extra details.  The background are made with Layered Lacey Square Dies and sponged with Distress Ink Broken China. I also added a little tag using Mini Tag Sentiments and Mini Tag Dies.  Hope you like my take on this week's challenge and that you can play along.
