Springtime Tulips

Hi everyone.  I can't believe how fast this week has flown by. It's been a busy week, both at work and home.  I've been working on Mother's Day cards as well as Mark & Anna's wedding invitations. 

Today's card is a digital image from Power Poppy called "Tulips".

After resizing and printing I used copics to colour.  I then cut the image out with an oval die, left the die in place then sponged some antique linen around the top and shabby shutters around the bottom.

Designer paper is from Authentique - Springtime.  I did a top folding card this time - which I don't do to often.  I used a  corner rounder to round the bottom corners on all three pieces.

After adhering the dp to the  black card stock I tied some yellow gingham ribbon around the adhered this to my base card.

Finished off with some enamel dots and wink of stella clear pen for the a bit of glitter on the tulips.

Stamp - Power Poppy - digital tulips
ink- distress antique linen, shabby shutters, copics - Y21, Y38, YR27, YG01, YG03, YG17, YG25, YG67
paper -  cougar white 100 lb, black, Authentique - springtime
dies - spellbinders - oval, grand calibur nested ovals one
misc - corner rounder, gingham ribbon, enamel dots, wink of stella clear pen

Thanks for the visit.  I hope I inspired you today. Have a wonderful day,

I love the top fold. How beautiful are the colours of the tulips. The combination of antique linen and shabby shutters is stunning. You are the colour queen! I should consider using the corner rounder on the corners. It makes a difference. This card sure makes you think of spring. Hope it is here soon. The yellow gingham ribbon gives this beautiful card the final touches.

I treated myself to some yellow tulips just yesterday! They are not the ruffled kind like on your card, which I love. Such a pretty card and such a lovely coloring. I especially like the placement of your three dots....will have to refer back to that! Whenever I place my dots I always think they look weird 😄

Oh, sooooo gorgeous! I was looking at these digi tulips on my computer the other day and thinking about printing them, but then thought of how many digis I have already printed and not yet colored. Sheesh! But you remind me just how beautiful they are. Stellar coloring in the shades of yellow (one of my fave colors), and love the pretty die cut mat. Really pops them ringed in black. And, of course, love the yellow gingham ribbon and pretty spring green paper. I simply MUST go color now!

Beautiful card Pauline. I like how you used the two colours of distress around the image. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, Pauline, this is gorgeous, and I love your coloring and choice of DP for the background. Truly stellar coloring and a wonderful layout! I love how the black is so striking and really pops your card, and I'm with Leslie - you've placed the enamel dots perfectly! Stunning card, my friend! Truly! Hugs!

All those layers are just scrumptious. That pretty decorative oval die sure kicks it up a notch.
