Tulips For A Friend

Hello everyone! It's still cold and rainy here in West Yorkshire.  Hope it's a better day in your part of the world.
Today I have a card made with Spellbinders 'Gold Ivy' dies, embossed with a Darice folder and stamped with a beautiful image from Flourishes 'Tulips for Friends' set, which is appropriate, as my card is for a friend...
I inked around the edge of my die and also sponged with Memento, 'New Sprout'. I coloured my image with water brush and distress inks.
I cut a card to fit the shape of my die and embossed that with the Darice folder.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...

Thank you for stopping by
Wishing you all a lovely weekend
Love, Sasha x

What a stunner, the jug of flowers just pops against the crisp white soft green sponging - so vibrant and so beautifully watercolored/colored, Sasha! It's not very warm here either! :(

Thea said...

Beautiful card Sasha and i hope for you with these tulips spring will soon come back. The last few days here were beautiful but yesterday and today again windy, rain and again colder. So you are not the only one ;-)

Have a nice weekend!

I love the shape of this one and your pretty flowers Sasha.

I think of you often, since we are watching the whole set of "All Creatures Great and Small" for at least the 20th time. I don't know whether you are any where near where it was filmed or not, but I have always wanted to visit that beautiful countryside.
