Pretty Tulips

Good Morning!  We're now on the downhill side of this week. Whoo-hoo!!  Yesterday was Hollyanne's birthday, so this weekend we'll be having a few girls here for a slumber party. 

I have another card to share with you that features one the newest digis from Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  These Tulips are so gorgeous, I was really worried that I wouldn't be able to color them well enough to do the image justice.  I think they turned out really pretty.

I did get some inspiration from Andrea's Stampin Moments Simply Saturday post (last week).  She did this great embossed grid and I like that look.  Combine it with another technique or two, this could look like a real tiled wall.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Regal Rose, Black
Stamps/Ink:  Swirls (Autum Leaves), Regal Rose
Color:  Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol
Tools:  Scor-Pal, Cuttlebug, Scallop oval Nesties (Spellbinders), Oval cutter (CM)
Embellishments:  button (SEI), black/white gingham ribbon (Offray)

I hope you like my card - I am pretty pleased with it.  Have a happy Thursday and thank you so much for stopping by.
