Lovely tulips - power poppy challenge

 I just love the May challenge over at Power Poppy blog, but how can one pick a favorite floral image? I love all of Marcella's floral images!  I guess maybe I will have to participate in the challenge a few times this month!

Well here goes, here is my first card using one of my favourite images.  This is a digital image called-
tulips in a hobnail pitcher.

After I re-sized my image I printed it on cougar white 100 lb c/s, then coloured with copics. I then cut it out using spellbinders circle die, then layered this onto another piece of white c/s cut using spellbinder royal circle die.

For my designer paper I used some older Basic Grey - stella ruby - love this line! For the card base I used some bazzill lagoon paper and cut using spellbinders grand calibur scallop square. I cut 2, then scored across the back side about an inch down, then just glue the top above the scoreline to the front of the card.  This way it allows you to open the card much easier.

To finish off I used, lace, silk ribbon, wink of stella pen and sequins.

Give me a moment while I catch my breath... whew! Gorgeous card! Amazing coloring, beautiful die cut, colors, and trims. Truly one of my favorite PP florals, too, even though it's impossible to pick a single favorite. Maybe a dozen favorites, but not just one. You probably know how I loved my Stella Ruby and can't believe I worked my way through a whole 12 x 12 collection of it. Love it with the Lagoon paper. I think I used a lot of the old SU Sage Shadow with it. Your card is a stunner, Pauline, and I do not use the term lightly.
