Tulip Bouquet

The snow from last week end is quickly melting so I'm once again "thinking spring". This card is for the great color challenge at CR84FN. The beautiful 'spring' colors for this challenge are Lavender, Gray and Chartreuse. I used the sketch from Card Patterns to design my card.



The "tulip bouquet" stamp is from Repeat Impressions, Embossing folder is Sizzix, edger is MS and the pearl brad is from the Eyelet Outlet. the ribbons and pearls are from Michaels. The image was colored with Copic markers. The tulips and paper edges were highlighted with ultra fine glitter.


Here is the lovely inspirational photo. Be sure to check out the super verse on this one!




This is the sketch that I used to create my card.

Marie, wow! I do love purple and white together, and this certainly says "spring". I think you did a great job coloring your image, and I adore the touches of pearls along the scalloped borders. :)
