Daffodil Thanks

I took another day off today after taking a muscle relaxer for my back problem. I couldn't wake up this morning. I slept until 11:30 am and then took 2 naps today. So no more muscle relaxers on a work day. But this afternoon I had a chance to sit down to make some thank you cards for the brides family. I wanted to thank Anne's parents and her grandmother who hosted a breakfast Sunday morning after the wedding. Here's the card I made Anne's parents.

The image is from From the Heart Stamps called Daffodils. I colored them with Copics. I colored the background too with Copics but then used the colorless blender to make some circles on the background. I cut a photo pic shape from card stock. I used several colors of washi tape for the background. The sentiment is from a Gina K stamp set. I finished it off with some twine. I used navy blue and yellow because that was the colors for the wedding. I used the sketch from the i {heart} sketches with a twist no. 111.
I am entering these challenges:
Here's a few more pictures from the wedding:

Here's my handsome guys waiting for the wedding to start. From left: my DH Tom. the groom Steve and his brother Dan.

This is my DH and I at the reception. Can you tell I have two black eyes? The make up artist did an awesome job after I fell a week before the wedding and wound up with two black eyes. Hit face first into a log across the path while Tom and I were out hiking. The artist airbrushed my face. Fortunately by the day of the wedding I didn't look nearly as bad as I did during the week. Well, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Love your card. The coloring is very pretty and makes me smile. Love the pictures of the boys looking so together,lol. And so sorry to hear you had a bad fall, glad they could cover up the black eye's, girl be careful out there in those woods,lol. Sounds like you need a vacation after all the wedding fun.

Beautiful summer card Donna. I love daffodils. The wedding must have looked amazing and I think yellow was the theme? Yikes, that must have hurt, glad nothing serious though.
