May Flowers

Hello! I still have beautiful tulips blooming ...some of the late ones seem to be staying longer than usual. For this card, I used Power Poppy's digital image Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher that I colored with Copics and used Glossy Accents on the pitcher.  I cut with Nesties circle die and placed on 2 Green Scallop Circles arranged as an oval.  I used an ODB gingham pattern paper that I embossed with Cuttlebug EF Gingham.  I love the effect of using pattern papers with embossing folders. The card base is GKD Grass Green CS and the Pink Satin Organdy ribbon is from my that I have been hoarding.  I stamped the GKD Birthday sentiment on Pink Vellum with Memento Green ink and embossed with Clear EP. I trimmed the sentiment and attached to the ribbon with Vellum Tape as I wanted the ribbon to show.  This color combo of green and pink is by far one of my favorites.
