MMTPT142, Tulip Time!



Hello again, this is my card for today's Teapot Tuesday Challenge MMTPT142. This week we were to bring Tulips!

The Destination Station this week is to Kay, the almost 92 year old Grandmother of Charlene aka crystaldolphins! Kay has had some health problems lately and has been in the hospital since February! Now that's enough to bring anyone's spirits down, so we are sending her some happy mail. She is looking forward to returning home soon, just in time to enjoy the nice weather, and get back to her computer!

I've has the new owl punch from SU for a while now, still in it's wrapper so I decided to brake it in instead of using a stamp. I followed Valita's wonderful tutorial, she always comes up with the coolest ideas even the leaves are genius!

The tulip is daffodil delight, edges sponged with ruby red. The stem & leaves are old olive, edges sponged. I used a glue pen and added dazzling diamonds glitter to the tulip.

The fancy mat in the background is a Marianne's Designs creatables die, which our local stamp store is now carrying.

The card base is ruby red, with a layer of crumb cake embossed with the SU square lattice EF. Then I used the ticket punch on the corner and added some yellow pearls!

I finished it off with a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers set 'In the Forest', and a little bow!

Have a Great Day!
Laurie
