Freebie Tulips

Happy Friday ladies! Oh gosh am I glad the weekend is here! First because I am beat and ready for a break from work and second because I plan on spending some time with Glitterbabe on Sunday and can't wait! Well this card is a nice springy card and the image was a freebie from Fred She Said...she created it for the Stars and Stamps blog...be sure to visit their blog! Lots of inspiration. I had a blast coloring this image with my copics! I must say this is really the first time in a long time I have been happy with my coloring! Does that mean I am finally getting it??? LOL! But the real challenge for me with this card was the border! I used a MS around the page punch...well all of us who use these punches know that you can only use certain sizes of paper to create the punched design....my image did not fit into those dimensions. So I punched 3 different pieces of paper out with the punch and then lined them up to go around my card....lot of work...turned out ok...not sure I will do that again...but it was a challenge I was not going to give up on. Hope you like it! Also, I wanted to reminde you that if you have not commented on my giveaway card on my Wednesday post, you have until noon today to post a comment there. I will be posting the winner on my blog either later on today or Saturday morn! Thanks tons for stopping in to see me and leaving some love...have a great day today!

HUGS,
 Vicki

Phenomenal coloring Vicki, and way cool how you worked the border punch out! I like how you've added the bits of bling around the flower too.
