LOVE this tulip image.  So happy I finally got to color it!


There are some fun challenges this week that I had in mind while making the card:

Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge: “Lucky Charms – I have always loved pearls.  Did you know that black pearls are thought to offer the power of love and protection and luck and to give wisdom.  What’s not to love about that!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: “B is for…” – B is for a tulip BOUQUET, a sweet little stamped BOW and an embossed tulip BORDER.

Papertake Weekly Challenge: “Mum’s The Word” – Since this Sunday is Mothering Sunday in the UK, the challenge is to make a card for your mother.  My mom passed away over 25 years ago, but I still have the most wonderful mother-in-law anyone could ask for..  I loved the idea of using this sentiment for her mother’s day card this year.


Thanks for dropping by today.
Happy Crafting!
