Guest Designer for Quirky Crafts

I am honoured to be a Guest Designer for the Quirky Crafts Challenge!  One of the exciting things for me is that I won the opportunity with this project 

The fabulous image I have used is from the Sponsor Stitchy Bear Digital Designs

The tulip has been coloured with a combination of SU Chalks and Prismacolor Pencils.  It is then cut out and popped up onto a Floral Doily Motif that has been but and embossed with my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

The gorgeous DP are from the Curio Paper Pad by Basic Grey - this was part of a gift bag of products from my friend Hannah (aka bubblefrog) for my birthday - thanks Hannah - I am loving the rich warm colours!

The sentiment is a Kaiser Rubon - I brought them as I loved the different sentiments and then realised nI owned the Stamp Set - LOL!.  It has been sponged and popped up onto a Floral Doliy Accent - I love this tag .

Some ribbon around the tulip stems and a few pearls finish off this card.
