Simple Tulips

I drive by the entrance of a beautiful botanical garden every day.. at least a couple of times. The garden's drive is lined with a beautiful stone wall and right now the tulips are open in front of it. They are gorgeous! I want to get a photo before they go by but the weather has been so blah here that I'm not sure the photos would do the blooms justice (kind of like the photo of the card below).

So until the sun shines for more than 5 minutes at a time this card will have to do.

These tulips are from a set called A Year of Flowers over at Gina K. Love it! You will see flowers from this set again I guarantee! I used my Stamp' Write Markers to watercolor the tulips. They were cut out and mounted with some 3-D dotty things to a piece of Gina K. Pure Luxury layering weight paper.

This was the first attempt to sew on a card with my brand new Sew Mini. Not bad, but I won't point out the places I messed up either. I think I am going to like it with a bit more practice.

Have a great day!
