Fred She Said & Operation Write Home

Hello everyone. Today's card is from a Digi designed by Tracey of Fred She Said for Operation Write Home. You can get this free digi at the Stars and Stamps blog here. Operation Write Home is challenging cardmakers to make and send half Mother's Day/Father's Day cards and half all occasion cards i.e. Birthday, Miss You, Love You to send to our troops. Be sure to check out the Stars and Stamps blog for our very own Design Team member Darsie Bruno has a great tutorial using this Digi stamp.
Here is my card. I used a lot of layers in this creation. Starting at the top there are
4 layers of the tulips
2 Spellbinders scalloped die cuts
1 Spellbinders Tulip Pendant die cut
4 Martha Stewart Deep Edger Daisy Fan
1 Martha Steward Around the Page Wing loop Edger
1 Spellbinder Fancy Tag
Here is the inside of this card. I used the small tulip die that is available in the Tulip Pendant pack. I also used the Tulip Borderability from Spellbinders. I think this is just the perfect Mother's Day card filled with wonderful colors and images for Spring. I hope you have enjoyed viewing this card and that you find some inspiration today. I am signing off for now. I have some homework and studying as I will be having an Exam on Medical terms on Thursday. Thanks for stopping by!!!
These are the challenges I have entered:
Challenge p Your Life - Flowers
Creative Card Crew Challenge - Celebration
Cute Card Thursday - Celebrations

Hi Carol!

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog!

I really think you should enter the Haunted Design House challenge. I have got some very cool World of Warcraft images I could send you if you want. Maybe they could help "kick start" you *LOL*

It is nice to make feminine flowercards, but once in a while I like to go over the top with the darker side of me ;o)

I love these tulips! Gorgous! I love how you have colored them!

My e-mail is
Send me a mail and I will look throug my images and send you some. Ok
