WWC205 Donna's "All About Holidays" Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Donna is our hostess this week with Holidays Around The World.

For the challenge this week I am celebrating St David's Day which is 1 March.  People in Wales and those of Welsh origin celebrate the life of their patron saint, St David, and the Welsh culture on March 1 each year. Many people pin a daffodil or leek to their clothes and some, especially children, wear traditional costumes.

I chose to use a Daffodil stamp from Altenew to make my card. 

I stamped the daffodils onto some Strathmore Bristol paper and used Zig Clean Clear Real Brush markers in Orange, Yellow, Bright Orange, Light Green and Olive Green to colour them before die cutting.  I added splatters of orange and yellow and black onto a card base and added the daffodils. I popped up one on foam tape.  I white embossed a sentiment from the stamp set onto black card. 

Come join in the fun and make a Holiday card.  Check out the projects that the artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created then take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Mondays at 5 p.m. Mountain Standard Time (Tuesdays at 1pm NZ time) to link up your project.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
