Tulips in Bucket

Hi there,

Is everyone having a great week?  The weather has been just amazing!  We all know it wouldn't be spring without tulips so I hope you enjoy my card today.

On a piece of Shimmery White paper cut from a Spellbinders Labels Seventeen #5 die, I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The tulips and bucket were colored with Copic markers.

Friend was stamped in StazOn Black on a piece of Almost Amethyst paper cut from a Lacey Oval #1 die.  I added a little bow from 1/8" violet ribbon using my Bow-Easy.  The butterfly is from SU's Beautiful Wings die.

Before mounting everything I sponged the 4" doily with Almost Amethyst ink.  The background is Euphoria paper by Basic Grey.

I noticed last night someone has been snacking on my garden tulips.  Could it be one of my bunnies?  I put a cage around them so hopefully we will have a few blooms.  I tell you it is tough being a gardener  :-)

Very nice Donna. I love tulips. I witnessed a squirrel "pick the flower" off of our tulips last spring. Would have thought it was a bunny, but actually saw the squirrel do it! So frustrating, especially when they were my favourite ones. Our tulips are nowhere near blooming yet, even though our weather has been fabulous too. Have a great weekend.

Hi, Donna,
No, I don't think any flowers say springtime more than tulips. Your card is so lovely. I love the colors you used! We are having a pretty spring day here in Central Texas. Enjoy your weekend, my friend~Vicki
