Bucket full of Tulips

Good afternoon - thank you for stopping by - I do love having visitors to my blog and reading all the comments that people leave make my day!

I'm back again with my 3rd guest design team spot for 2 Paper Divas I am really enjoying using their stamps, they stamp a really good crisp image and are so nice to color.

Today's card is using a recently released stamp Tulip Bucket Bouquet and Bloom Wildly Sentiments:

I challenged myself with the flowers making them variegated instead of one color, blending from pink to yellow. Once colored I used a corner punch on the top left of the image and matted this onto pink and white card having used the corner rounder on both of these. I made a 5x5 inch card base and matted this with pick card from my stash I then cut a piece of patterned card into diagonal strips removing every other strip I arranged them over the pick card to give a striped background effect.  
After adhering my image to the card I matted the sentiment with the same colors and rounded the bottom right corner on this - I was then fixed into position using dimensional foam squares

Ingredients used:
2 Paper Divas - Tulip Bucket Bouquet
Papermania - Lemon Sorbet Capsule Collection - Retired

2 Paper Divas hold monthly challenges - the details are here.
