Tulip Bouquet Thanks

Good Morning everyone, and happy April 1st!  I’m not fooling, this was a fun card to make!

Red Tulips - 1

I started off my cutting a piece of card stock slightly smaller than an A2 base card and sponged Frayed Burlap ink through the Scraped Paint stencil.  I cut two of the Tulip Bouquet die, one in red and the other in green.  I placed the pieces of each tulip back into the die cut and taped it on the back to secure them, then glued the flowers directly over the green die cut. 

For dimension, I added a little Frayed Burlap ink at the very bottoms of the flowers and then a little Wink of Stella glitter brush to highlight.

I cut one Tall Bamboohttp://memoryboxco.com/product_detail.asp?id=98575 and curled each of the leaves to add to the bouquet, and adhered them with the flowers to the stenciled card stock.  I die cut the sentiment from “A Little Thanks” die, and also covered that with Wink of Stella before adding it to the layer.  Once assembled, I tied some tan-colored twine around the layer and added a multi-looped bow with a glue dot. I used mounting tape to adhere this to the card front.  I found some tan-ish pearl embellishments in my stash, and added those to the card front to finish it.

Hope everyone has a fun April Fool's day today!  Thanks for stopping by.

Wow that is beautiful, love the stenciled background, the deep red just pops against it and love the curling of the leaves, great touch!

I absolutely adore the colour combination. Beautiful card.

So pretty, Sherry. Love how you curled the leaves. Looks very realistic!

I love the twisted leaves. Very clever idea.
