FSS Parrot Tulip

Hello and happy hump day! I have been busy the last few days working outside...in the COLD! Yeah even though it is spring here, the weather has been NOT so spring like! We are expecting a frost tonight so I hope all my hard work does not got to naught. I have been creating a memory garden that will contain perennials from my late friend. She was an avid flower gardener...one of the many interests her and I shared. Her brother has been so kind to let me take any of the plants I want from her garden and plant them in my memory garden. I am almost done...and because they are all perennials I am not real worried about them getting nipped tonight. I did bring many of her tulips...which made me want to create a flower card tonight. And Fred She Said designs has the perfect image! I used the FSS Parrot Tulip pre-colored image...and did a little photoshop magic with it. I combined 3 of the images into one bouquet of flowers. Cut the image out with an oval nestability and then matted that with a labels 10 nestability. The embossed background is the Scallop and Loop Ribbon folder from Sizzix. The stick pin base and adorning pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty...as well as the gingham ribbon. I have been waiting for just the right card to use my stick pins. The pin was actually an ivory pin that I colored with a copic marker to match the ribbon...did the same with the ivory beads on the pin. Well, I am off to play some more...hope your day was a blessed one and thank you so much for stopping in to see me! My next project is to make some roses with a FSS SVG file...so be sure to check back!

HUGS!
