Mother's Day Tulips

There are several Challenges this week to make a Mother's Day Card. Evidently, It's soon Mother's Day in the UK. Or, maybe it was this weekend, not sure.
Anyway, I had this great Tulip Bouque Digi from Fred She Said and thought I'd play along with some of the Mother's Day challenges. The tulips have some Glitz Glitter Gel on them and the picture with the glitter looks a little wierd. But the tulips are very pretty in real life.

There's a lot of dimension to this card that you really can't see. The whole image was stamped three times, colored with Copic Markers, cut out and layered with foam tape.

The inspiration for the design of this card came from A Spoonful Of Sugar Challenge Blog.

The Sophia Papers, bling, ribbon, glitz glitter gel, Say it in Style Stamp set, & button are all from Close to my Heart.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
