Bits & Pieces Make a Tulip Anniversary

My 'Bits & Pieces' box helped me once again, this time with a pretty tulip image from Anna Griffin.  It had been stamped on a bit of cardstock and colored, and then waited a long time for me to put it to use.


A Grommet Tags die from Spellbinders fit it perfectly.  I layered another die cut underneath, from Fancy Tags Two.  All patterned papers come from K & Co.'s Julianne stack.  They are so traditional and elegant, and really appeal to me.

For years, I only had one Papertrey Ink stamp set (Wonderfully Whimsical), and always held off getting more because I thought they were too expensive.  Well, that's all behind me now - hee hee - and I have really stocked up!  LOL  The sentiment here comes from Daily Designs Sentiments....a SUPER-essential set, in my opinion.


Can't wait to show you some Mother's Day cards later this week, so I'll see you soon.  Thanks so much for coming by today.

Gosh, this is so pretty! Gorgeous papers and layout. My bits and pieces box doesn't have anything colored in it. Just a bunch of mismatched parts and it gets more full all the time. I need to get serious about digging around in there. Gorgeous card, Colleen!
