Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 116
Do tulips even exist in this color of blue? The only tulips that seem to grow in my front yard are yellow, and that doesn't match my paper, hehe! I'm thinking those yellow tulips aren't going to last much longer either, seeing how the kids want to clip them and put them in a vase for me for Mother's Day. Awww... I gave Michael permission to cut them, they are about to take a turn towards the end of bloom, so I'd rather see them in my house. I really need to plant more bulbs next fall so I have more than yellow tulips in the spring. Any suggestions? I need something other than yellow. please... haha!
I grabbed one of my favorite Verve sets, Miracles Blossom and stamped the stems in Old Olive and the tulips in Not Quite Navy and popped them up. I used the Leafy Branch Die from Taylored Expressions for the leaves and then snipped some of the branches off and moved them around to fill out the underside of the panel. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and I just sponged the edges in Not Quite Navy and added a few ice blue rhinestones in the center.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day! I'm going bowling with Avery and my mom, so I'm really excited to have a 3-generation bowl-a-thon! haha!
