Pitcher of Tulips

I have a few more cards to show you this week from our March Release at Flourishes...I think that would probably be ok with you right? :)


Oh there's not much prettier than a bouquet of tulips!  I love the variety of color they come in and what the colors and the greens look like together.  It's so full of spring!  Which we're going to be in short supply of this March.  It snowed another 12 inches this past week..blech.  We're a long way from feeling like spring here.  

I stamped the pretty Tulips for Friends onto Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black, die cutting the image out with the Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die;  framing it out with some Flourishes Classic Black Cardstock.

The Designer paper is MME Unforgettable, which I also paper pieced on the pitcher.  I've added some embossing on the ivory layer, some wooden buttons tied with twine and a wee bit of seam binding, and ivory crochet lace to edge it out.







Above is a list of the Copics I used.  

Thanks for dropping by, and I hope Spring is finding your neck of the woods this week!
