Tulips a sign of Spring

Good Evening crafty friends, followers and visitors

A quick post from me this evening.  To me tulips always remind me of Spring, I love the tulip stamp from Sheena Douglass' especially with Pebeo Acrylic paints. 

Rick and I spent this morning with our granddaughters, my they sure are growing up quick.  I spent time reading to Alice her new reading book about Peter Rabbit.  We had a lovely time with them and then came home and my Step Son called round.  So a good day all in all.

Pale green shaped card
First layer is white card which I have embossed using Die'sire Embossalicious Floral Frenzy and then cut with Spellbinder Label 1 die
I used Creative Expressions Metallic Guilding Wax in Patina
The topper is Sheena Douglass' Tulip which I have painted with Pebeo paints
I have added a ribbon and tied a bow which I have added a metal basket charm.
To finish off I have added a butterfly and some cream card candy

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

A lovely card, Linda. Our son brought me a huge bunch of tulips as a late Mothering Sunday gift. Thank you for your visit and kind comments. I love making scenes and stories on my cards, and I am lucky enough to have a number of great stamps which work well together. Hope you had a good Easter. xx Maggie

This is the kind of card that I have to look at for about 15 minutes to see exactly how you made all of the elements come together. I have never heard of gilding wax before but I love the soft shiny color and the little basket is so adorable! I love the flower and the butterfly too!

Thank you for playing along with the One Stitch At a Time Design Team!
