Crafty Purple Frog Challenge #35 St David's Day

This is my second post today, see post below for my DT inspiration for Aud Sentiments.
We've loved seeing all your entries in our Flower Power challenge but it's time for a new at the Crafty Purple Frog and this fortnight the theme is St David's Day (use yellow and green).
I've used the just one layer of  the "Night Daffodil" decoupage for my card and one of the new Spring Florals papers.

I've used only the top layer of the decoupage for this card and printed the gorgeous backing paper from Amy's Spring Floral collection onto vellum, layered it onto white then green card. Image is mounted 3d onto yellow and green oval nesties then mounted 3d onto the card. Finished with a stamped sentiment, a bow and a flower. The vellum looks lovely irl but it's very difficult to photograph!

All decoupage and pyramage sheets are available from The Crafty Purple Frog.

Do call by the challenge blog to see the gorgeous samples from my teamies, you won't be disappointed.
