Tulips for Mother's Day

Hi Bloggers,

Yes, I know it's early for Mother's day but I had this image lying around and I've been putting some cards together to send to Cazz for Operation Blue Witch Squadron so I thought I'd post this today.

The image is Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit - Tulip. It's been stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and has been coloured using Promarkers. I cut it out using a rectangle nestie and edged it with Barn Door Distress Ink. I cut a mat out of red card using a scalloped rectangle nestie.

For the background paper I used the Stamps by Judith Stubbie AAA-04 Dots available in the UK here or in the USA here. This is such a useful stamp - Love it! I stamped it randomly over my white card using Marvy Bending Blox in Shades of Red and in Shades of Pink. I edged it with Barn Door Distress Ink.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and added a bit of colour with Promarkers. I cut a mat out of red card using a Spellbinders Eyelet Circle Die.

I mounted my dotty background paper onto some red card and ran some Hi-Tack Tape across it. I added some red polka dot ribbon and added a bow in the same. I added the image and sentiment as shown and glued some red gems top right using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
