Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Card for the Happy Inkin” Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our blog we have a sketch challenge.  With this sketch there is lots of space for some big stamping and the Daffodil Daydream stamp set seemed the perfect stamp set to create a springtime card.  My focus for this card too was to keep it simple.  Sometimes there is not time to spend hours on one card and with this design, simplicity was the main focus.  (No “Kristi” bow or extras on this card)  and with the Daffodil Daydream stamp set this design works!

The Sketch:
