Easter Daffodils - Woodware USA Challenge 23

The new Woodware USA Challenge (WWUSAC23) is to use die cuts or punches on your project. For my card today I have used Woodware USA's Daffodils clear stamp set.

I started by stamping the main image onto a die cut, then paper-piecing it using the new Lemon Flower papers from DCWV. The card base measures 5.5" x 3.5" after folding, so the die cut extends a little past the top edge; still fitting in a standard envelope.
Just the details… (1)Used shiny cardstock when paper-piecing the flowers and adhered them with foam dots, (2) Used a scalloped scallop border punch for the top paper on the card base, (3) Stamped 'Happy Easter' repeatedly across the bottom of the card front using a shiny gold ink, (4) Repeated the 'Happy Easter' sentiment once on the inside of card and placed a small strip of patterned paper across the bottom.
