Sneaks Day 1: Tulips For Friends!

Hi all and welcome to day 1 of Flourishes' Release Week fun! Today, we have a bouquet that is ripe for the picking and these flowers have a bit of a spring flair! Are you ready for the first peek?



A beautiful single tulip or a bouquet poised and ready to deliver to someone special - that's what you get with this gorgeous set -- Tulips for Friends --- illustrated by Marcella Hawley. Paired with six scripted sentiments, this set is perfect for all kinds of cards or creations for your friends!

On to my creation!
To start my card, I made it easy and picked up Flourishes' 123 Create Kit called Vintage Finds! I love, love, love the antique flavor this paper offers and the yellows are neutral enough and very classy. I thought this would be a fun backdrop for a bouquet of yellow tulips. I started by cutting out the tulip bouquet shape using the soon-to-be-released Tulips for Friends Cut File. I stamped the bouquet with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White, colored it with Copic Markers (see list of colors below!), then, the fun began -- add a little Perfectly Pierced Window (embossed and sanded). I added a tag with a little bow and wooden button. The sentiment is actually from the Zinnias stamp set. Add a ruffle trim and a sanded and embossed background and... ta da!

Here's a close up of the little tag.....

Here's a peek at my colored tulips!

And, I did stamp the inside of my card a wee bit....
