Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge

I was inspired by the colours of this months Chocolate Baroque challenge and also by the the tulips that have just opened in my garden. So using one of last years Year of Stamping Tulips made the card below to enter.



I stamped the smaller of the two stamps using Memento ink and coloured using distress pens, I then cut out the image and mounted onto gold mirri card. The background was made using distress inks and then over stamping with a flourish stamp from the Patchwork Butterflies set. Finally the sentiment is from the Amazing Birthday set.


Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
