Spring Tulips...

Well, I'm feeling better, finally! Thanks to all the lovely "get well" wishes I've been receiving! I woke up this morning ready to work on cards and get ready for my card club on Saturday! I can't wait to show what I've made, but it will be after the party! I don't want to spoil the surprise!

My card today uses Fred, She Said's "Tulip Trio" which is being offered on the Stars and Stamps blog for free!  I really love the color combination I chose for this card. I took it from a Basic Grey 6 x 6 paper stack, and then purchased the entire set in 12 x 12!

I printed the tulips on Whisper White cardstock, colored with Copic Markers, then cut it out leaving a small white edge. My designer paper is from Basic Grey, and I used the new Nestabilities Labels Eleven with orange glittery cardstock. I punched the corners of my gray panel with a Fiskars punch, then mounted both pieces to white glittery cardstock. I raised my tulips up with pop dots, added organza grey ribbon with a bow, and finished it off with rhinestones. I glued it all together to a white card measuring 4 3/4 x 6 inches.
