Tulip Framed Flowers

Hmm...yes, it's an interesting title. ;-)

Today's card is one that I made for display at a recent party. It uses something NEW out of the Occasions Mini, and a few things that have been around for awhile...almost a year! lol

It also uses one of my favorite color combos...Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla.

I stamped the flower (from Elements of Style)  with Black Stazon ink so that I could easily color it in without the ink smearing. I used my aquapainter and ink pad lid to color in the flowers and leaves, and markers to highlight areas I wanted darker (including yellow centers).

The ribbon is our Early Espresso 5/8" satin, and the whole shebang is framed with tulips! Do you see them?? Look's the raised design along the edges. How did I do it?? Well, I used the new tulip frame embossing folder and the Big Shot. Fun, huh?  I love how it gives a little something extra.

Well, what do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)
