Tulips for Spring, Nature and Mother's Day

I've got a fairly busy month this month, so I made my mother's day card early. Then I realised that it covers two challenges as well. Spring Inspiration at the Allsorts Challenge blog and also Close To Nature at the Stamping Sensations Challenge blog. As my Mum is not on the Internet, I think I'm fairly safe posting this on here today. I've used one of my favourite Chocolate Baroque stamps from The Year Of Stamping collection for my card. The stamp comes in two sizes and for this card I used the largest which is about 6x6 in size. I stamped with Memento Black Onyx ink then coloured with promarkers. I then took a separate piece of white card stock and blended distress inks in the colours of the tulips. Then I took a swirl stamp also from one of the Chocolate Baroque sets and over stamped in two different shades of green. Before sticking to an 8x8 base card I placed a ribbon around the centre of the card then added a large bow and a flourish from a Marianne die. The tulips were stuck on with foam tape and the sentiment was made using the PC, after printing and cutting to size I went around the outside with a black marker.



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

This is a real 'Dutch' spring card! In our garden the tulips are not in bloom yet, but I can see the leaves already. Still a few more warm days and then......!
