A host of golden daffodils

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown (yellow, salmon/orange, green and white).

Of course when I saw the palette and the inspiration photo, I knew I had to do another daffodil card. This was a labour of love! I used the daffodil border stamp from the Pretty Pink Posh Spring Days set and fussy cut the images. Then I coloured them all in… which took forever! Finally the colouring was done and I was able to layer my images on the card base. I used a Memory Box sentiment to complete my card.

I have had the beautiful Wordsworth poem in my head all weekend, so I wanted to share it here:

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Thanks for stopping by!
