Nicole Heady Spring Challenge

Hope you are having a great Sunday!
Nicole heady from Papertrey Inc. has the most beautiful Challenge going on at her Blog "Capture the Moment". Her design team has come up with the most inspiring creations and Nicole has challenged us all to join in the fun. I love Lisa Johnson's field of tulips taken at The Skagit Tulip Festival. My card started out (in my head) as bold bright and vivid, but somehow evolved into soft pastels ~ Don't know how that happened, do you :o?

Anywho, here are the details on my card: The lavender card stock used as the card base is from Royal Langnickel. I recycled the pink, white, lavender, and green scollop punched card from a note card by Victoria Elizabeth. The textured white card stock with the stamp image is from The Paper Company. The 'tulips in the vase' stamp is from my See D's 262 set of clear stamps which I chalked in the colors pink-tulips, lavender-vase and used glitter markers to outline each. There is "Cotton Candy" Stickles on the flowers and 3-D Crystal Lacquer is added to the water (see the close up shot). I thought this was going to be enough on the card, buuuuttt, I was wrong, hence a sheer with satin edge ribbon bow was attached and, of course, a butterfly (Martha Stewart) with bling ~ somebody STOP me ~
