Here is a close-up. Does it make you smile too?
The tulip card was actually inspired from this red flower card. I
always sometimes have half-finished cards sitting around in my "half-finished card box". Some are my experiments, and some are not so pretty, and some are half finished just like this one. I just couldn't decide which sentiment I'd like to use! So it was left there in the box without a sentiment. Now I finally took it out and finished making the card. (It was easy. I only stamped on the sentiment). I actually finished two cards at the same time!! Yeah!
The flowers also had shimmers added using a glitter pen.
The sentiment I used is from Penny Black called snippets. I love that there are many sentiments to choose from for any occasions. The grass and tulips were from a stamp set called Stamp-A-Birthday kit by Hugh Lauter Levin Associates I got from a garage sale many years ago. I think it was the first stamp set I have ever owned. It has many rubber stamps and instructions to make birthday cards. I finally put the stamps to good use in the last year when I started making cards.
I am playing along with the Less is More Challenge #324. The theme is spring walk.
And the CAS Watercolor Card April Challenge. Green & Pink.
Casology week 245: grow. My card reminded me of this nursery rhyme and I just can't stop singing it,"Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow?" If you want hear the song, click here. It's from "little angel" I found from youtube.
