Daffodils and Gingham

The CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers is to use the spotlighting technique - I used a lovely spring image from Paper and Such - Daffodils, a very kind gift from Janice (aka catcrazy).
If you've never done spotlighting before, it simply means highlighting part of your image with color, usually by stamping it twice and adding a circle, square, rectangle, etc. of the image colored. 
We had a week of beautiful weather and now we're back to dismal rain so making this card with sunny yellow daffodils and gingham cheered me up!
In order to get a very thin black circular frame I used a circle cutter rather than the next size Nestie circle die.
Copics used:
Y17, Y08, Y06, Y02
YG67, YG25 YG23
Supplies include:
Verve Circular Sayings
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles
Fiskars Circle Cutter
SU Yoyo Yellow cardstock
Paper Mill Shop white linen cardstock

Bridget, this is lovely. I've always loved yellow and gingham. Spring and all its new birth is a blessing for sure.
