Tulip Flowers Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

Please forgive me for my absence, I am still going though a difficult time and I have been really ill on top so I just haven't felt like blogging.

I made this card for my next door neighbour for her birthday. I thought the yellow was very cheerful and spring like. 

I started out by stamping the Tulips and a border from the Justrite Breath of Spring Stamp set. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Xpress it Blending Cardstock and then I coloured it in using Copic markers. I die cut the flowers and border using a Spellbinders Classic Oval. I also die cut a yellow scalloped oval using a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval die to mount my focal image onto. I adhered yellow rhinestones onto each of the scallops to finish my focal image.
I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink and die cut it out using a Spellbinders die from the Ribbon Tag Trio set. I threaded some white grosgrain ribbon through the tag and set it aside with my focal image.
Next I cut down a piece of gingham patterned paper to slightly smaller than my card base. I adhered my sentiment tag onto the bottom of the patterned paper where I wanted it and wrapped the ends of the ribbon around the back of the paper. I secured them down with a small amount of masking tape. 
I then adhered my patterned paper onto my cardbase using a Tombow Mono Adhesive tape runner. To finish my card I adhered my focal image using some dimentional foam squares.

I am going to enter this card into a couple of challenges.

I hope you have enjoyed viewing todays card. It is very difficult to post frequently right now with everything that I've got going on but I will do my best!

Until next time,
