Dotted Tulips


Ooh, I love tulips and I love dots so you can imagine what fun I had making this card for the new Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. She is Charlene aka LilLuvsStampin' and her gallery is full of awesome cards to choose from. I decided to case this card. She also had a lot of dotted, paper pieced tulips so that was calling me, too.

I paper pieced my tulips and used the same double sided paper for the pennants. The black was just a scrap. My recipe is below.

I want to enter my card into the Twisted Tuesday Challenges-I Never Promised You a Rose Garden with a 'twist'....no roses or rosettes. But, you must have flowers.

Also, I'm entering the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog-April Showers Bring Spring Flowers
