Fred She Said Parrot Tulip

 Just in case you haven't seen this I made this for the More is More Dirty Dozen Challenge back in February.  IAnyone who knows me knows that I always say how hard it is for me to do a CAS card-so this was a challenge....lol But all and all I had a blast doing this.
 
 Here is the more clean and simple card that I made.  I could have put more "stuff" on it but I tried to keep it as simple as possible and use the same ingredients I used in the more intricate card.

 Here is my more intricate card.  There are plies and plies of punches and die cuts on here and I just love it!!!  lol

 Here is a peek at the inside of the card. 

Here is a close up of the flowers.  This image is a single fl I used the loopy punch around the page from Martha Stewart for this. The oval and the beaded oval dies are from Spellbinders as well as the fleur de lis pieces. I distress inked the edges with bundled sage distress ink and touched the edges with stickles. I used the same supplies for the less embellished card-just not as much.ower but I flipped it and cut three of the flowers out to create this. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I really appreciate your visit.  Have a great weekend and see you soon!

My favorite flower and the ruffled version is gorgeous!! Love the way you grouped the tulips and great punched border to frame them, not to mention using one of my favorite colour combos of pink and green! Total beauty, Carol :)

Hi Carol,
Oh my, such a pretty card! Card making is something I had hoped to get into but I never did. I even took a course a few years ago but the cards the lady had us make were quite juvenile and I was looking for something more like yours. Beautiful, and the edges are so pretty. Thank you for stopping by my little home on the web and leaving your very nice comment. Hope you have a delightful weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi
