Retro Tulip Sympathy Card


365 Cards has this lovely photo as their Ad Inspired challenge and I immediately thought of the Jane Beljio Retro Tulip. I printed the digital tulip on a fun dandelion poem that my blogging friend Karen created. Originally I was thinking I'd do something black and white like the photo (b/c I have literal issues), but when I went to see what the current Squigglefly Challenge was it was for brown & cream sympathy card, since I already had cream going, I figured I'd work some brown into it. Tiffany Doodles is celebrating flowers all month long, so I'll add this to their current challenge. Sentimental Sundays is having an anything goes week, so here's another card for that challenge.

Materials: Jane Beljio Digital Retro Tulips, PTI sentiment, Karen Baker digital dandelion poem background, Stampin Up Chocolate Chip Designer papers, Fiskars tag punch, cream twine, Stampin Up black ink, Stampin Up green watercolor pencils and blender pen
