For this months Challenge- In March we leave Old Man Winter behind so let's create a VERY SPRING-Y project, loaded with all those lovely pastel colors!
Here is mine!
This is called the Tulip Bouquet Digi. Isn't this the most awesome image you ever saw of tulips. I left my bouquet container white but traced the design in pink then shadowed the edges of the picture in blue. Over that I applied crystal effects to get it a nice porcelain look and effect.
You know I just love Rangers China Blue distress ink, so that is what you see around the edges. I uses a Martha Stewart around the page punch and a spellbinders oval die cut. I layered my image for a 3D effect. The blue rhinestone flourish is a Recollection from Micheal's.
I did some stitching with white thread around my card. I just stickles on the tulips and all the blue distressed areas. The blue ribbon is also from Micheal's. The background white paper has been embossed with a basket weave cuttlebug embossing folder.
This is the inside of my card. I used the tulip image from the Spring Flowers collection for the lower right hand corner on the bottom of the card. The more I look at this image, the more I love it.
This last picture features the card and the envelope that I made as a set. What an awesome presentation for a card presentation for someone special in your life. It is going to be hard for me to part with this one...LOL
