Blue Tulips from Amsterdam!!
Hello again!! Well today was a more relaxing day for me, I had a lovely lunch date with some wonderful ladies from the Dutch club here in Miami. I am not Dutch but my husband Arjan is, so we try to keep the heritage going by attending some of the exciting events the Dutch club has to offer. We went to a terrific Japanese restaurant called "Kyojin" that has the most delicious food!! Buffet style with anything from sushi to curry, soups, salads, seaweed salads (for those who are adventurous!!) and yummy desserts. Thijs....my little sushi boy also loves this restaurant... but today he was at school so I was unable to take him with me, next time I most certainly will!!
Now to my card! In keeping with the Dutch theme of the day I decided to make blue tulips!!
This card is a little simpler than I usually make my cards but I actually was really happy with how it turned out. The card is double thick with two layers, one coffee colored the other light blue textured cardstock. The tulips and vase are two small stamps from a set that I have, they are colored with pencils and copics and then layered to give them some depth. The tulip heads have been embossed to give them a little sparkle. The tiny tulip punch I have had for such a long time but not used much, but I think they fit perfectly on this card. The edges I cut with a pair of fancy scissors....it's not that easy to get a really straight line with them though!! Anyway, let me know what you think of this card.
Have a great evening and I look forward to posting more cards soon.
