CUTTLEBUGSPOT FAVOURITE FLOWERS
Hope everyone is having a good week.
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week we are celebrating our favourite flowers! My favourite flowers are tulips but I always had a hard time with the stems wilting lol until I got a tip many years ago to put a piece of copper in the water in your vase for example a penny and I couldn't believe it it worked no more wilting stems!
Anyway for my card I used a cream card base which I have embossed with CB folder Goochie's Script this is one of the latest UK exclusives. My tulip stamp is actually a clipart purchased from Lettering Delights.com clipart set Vegetation 2. I printed it 3 times onto cream card and cut two extra tulip heads. I coloured the stem with Promarkers and pop dotted the 2 tulips and embossed the top one with CB Swiss dots and added two pale green crystal gems. This is matted on a rectangle die cut with my Nellie's die . The black and cream stripey ribbon is SU. Finally a happy birthday rubon.
My DT sisters have created the prettiest projects this week so make sure to pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and see them and if you enter the challenge this week there's a super prize of a $50 from Simon Says Stamp!!
Thanks for popping by
