Timeless Tuesday ~ Bring On Spring!

Happy Tuesday everyone!   Welcome to the Flourishes "Timeless Tuesday Challenge"!  Did you know that the first day of Spring is only TWO days away?  Yikes!  We still have a some snow here in Southern Alberta and I'm sure that Mother Nature isn't quite done with us yet.  Here's hoping for some signs of Spring soon and for you too.

I'm your hostess this week and my challenge is... you guessed it... all about SpringWe want to see a Spring inspired card or project this week (FTTC212).

For my project this week, I was inspired by our very Spring-y bouquet of tulips from the March release, "Tulips for Friends".
I began with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base made from Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  I die cut the card edge and then decorated the front with a variety of fun patterned papers.

I die cut a circle and a scalloped circle and adhered my simple greeting tag using the "Inside & Out: Hello" stamp set.

Then I stamped my full tulip bouquet from the "Tulips for Friends" stamp set onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock using Memento "Pistachio" ink.

I colored my bouquet using the following Copic Collections and markers BG23, BG32, R000, RV11 and RV42:
CO 14-2T

Now it's your turn to get Spring inspired.  Share a card or project that makes you think of Spring!  Good luck!
