Birthday Tulip

Purple, brown and green....I rather like this color combo.  I took my colors from the piece of patterned paper in the background ( DCWV's Chateau Lavender) and built from there.  It didn't hurt that I had this Flourishes tulip (Thank You stamp set) already in my box of colored images, and it was purple!


The sentiment is from Inspired By Stamping's Creative Tags set.


This card is part of the birthday gift for a special loved one, who requested lots of birthday cards to give away.  Hope she likes this!

Oh, she'll love it, I'm pretty sure of that! Gorgeous colors with that so soft shade of plum on the card base. Love the glittered flowers on the paper, and your star of the show tulip. Just lovely, Colleen!
