Spring Tulips

Good Wednesday morning!  As you probably know by now, I have taken the position of Blog Manager.  Becky did a phenomenal job, and I have some big shoes to fill, but I am up for it!  I am looking forward to it!  With that in mind, this will be my last Wednesday post.  I'll still be around...I am on both the Inspiration Challenge and Sketch Challenge teams.  :)  If  there is anything you'd like to see on the blog, just let me know!  All suggestions are welcome.  You can leave me a comment here or send an e-mail.  Now on to today's card.  

I have seen these tulips made with the XL Bird punch all over and decided to make one for myself. 
I just love it!  It's so bright and cheerful!  The stem and leaves are from the tulip stamp in the Garden Whimsy set.  The flower petals are 3 wings from the bird punch, and they're sponged with the matching ink.  There is a piece of Whisper White on top of the card base that has been embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Garden Green background layers really pop.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is punched with the Word Window punch and layered on a Modern Label punch.  Whisper White taffeta is the finishing touch.
Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Garden Whimsy, Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Ink- Garden Green, Summer Sun, Pink Passion, Tempting Turquoise.  Paper- Whisper White, Garden Green.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, XL Bird punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Whisper White taffeta. 
Happy Stampin'!
