Stop!!! And Smell The Tulips!!!
Happy Tuesday!!! I hope that you are having a magnificent week!
One of my bestest friends on-line and soon to be for REAL sent me this darling stamp and it arrived yesterday...Thank you sooooo much, Trixie Lee!!!! I was sooooooo scared to try it but I was just itching to get her cute little face all inky and decided to make my card for The Next Level this week which challenges us to use buttons and bows. If you have not visited this fairly new challenge blog you should waltz over and see what beautiful DT cards have been made this week. And don't forget, next week I am Guest Designer and I certainly want you to come see me then!!!! I am so excited AND nervous!!!!
For the front of my card I HAD to use this darling Doraline With a Bouquet of Tulips from a new Canadian company Motivet. I used Bazzill CS for the card base, SU Real Red for matting, and Spring Rain from the PTI Bitty Dots Basic paper pad. Doraline was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and a tiny touch of Diamond Glaze on her black patent shoes, and cut out using Blossom nesties. The band of wide red satin ribbon is from Honeysuckle Hollow which has a splendid ribbon and vintage section, and the blue is PTI Spring Rain grosgrain. The red tulips in the corners are buttons and the triple flowers are all from Crafty Feeling in the UK. The centers of the flowers and the 2 other corners are Icons red rhinestones. To finish the front I made 2 tiny red organza bows with a Bow-Easy.
I used the same papers and ribbon and nesties on the inside and in the same basic sketch as the front...adding some more tulip buttons and smaller red rhinestones.
Thank you so much for dropping by!! I hope you will take a moment to let me know what you think of little Doraline and will come back often. I just love having you visit!!! Hugs!!!
