Tulip Trio

Challenges

Dutch Dare (74) - Spring Card With Fabric (Lace)
Secret Crafter (76) - Pink/Green/Flowers
Stamptacular (52) - Flower Power + Spring Colours
Cupcake Craft (84) - Spring or Easter + Chocolate
The Cuttlebug Spot - Pink/Green
Fred She said - Spring
Sketch & Stash (32) - Sketch (New Butterfly Punch)

What can I say, another easel card AND more butterflies from my new Stampin Up set Flight Of The Butterfly. I really love this set and am having fun using it so you expect a lot more butterflies... The tulips have been coloured with pencils and decoupaged. I layered them with Nesties and added lace around the edge. The greeting is a sticker and the larger butterflies have been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (Swiss Dots) and inked with a distress ink pad.
