Spring Tulips


Hello!  I cannot wait until the tulips are in bloom.  So far this spring, crocus are the only blooming bulbs that I have, but the daffodils are starting to open.  I was inspired by the photo challenge (shown below) at The Shabby Tea Room to create this card with a stamp by Stacy Stamps using multi pastel colors. I stamped the image with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Gold EP.  I colored with Copics G40,21, R20,RV11,22,Y02,11 and just love the colors of the tulips.  I used a White Card Base with layers of Yellow and Pink and Cheery Lynn Die cuts of Pink CS to finish. I think this card just screams SPRING. 
 Challenges:
The Shabby Tea Room: #249 Rainbow of colors. Took inspiration from the multi colored tulips.
Sparkle and Shine : Photo Inspiration- Inspired by the yellow and pink. Used gold embossing for sparkle.
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says April Shower and/or Spring Flowers. My card features Spring Flowers.
Sweet Stamps Blog: #216 Flowers
Crafty Sentiments: Lots of Flowers
