Spring Tulips

I used the sketch from CPS

and the Mix It Up Monday - Three for Three Spring Cards Challenge at Stamp TV

Stamped the tulips from Gina K's A Year of Flowers and the leaves from Spring Basket, also by Gina K and both illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  Colored with Touch Twin Markers in slightly different shades since I didn't have the exact colors..  I made a smudge that couldn't be covered up, so I cut out the flowers and layered onto another piece of white cs.  They are outlined in the light blue, but it's hard to see in the photo.  Decided that the flowers needed to be framed by something, so I used Gina K's In Stitches, illustrated by Tami Mayberry and stamped them in black.  Added the lace and ribbon, tied the buttons with Baker's twine and attached with glue dots.  The stitches in the upper right hand corner were really messy looking, so I covered it with a butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by!
