A Flower For All Seasons - Tulip

Here's the next card that I made with the stamp set "A Flower for All Seasons".  This one is the tulip image, which of course works so well with the "Framed Tulips" embossing folder that is available in the current Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue. A little detailing using the Matt Pack and Paper Piercer, gives a wonderful faux stitch detail.
It just begged a bright cheerful colour, and here I used Daffodil Delight card stock and also sponged the embossed folder with Daffodil Delight ink to match. Using this colour was inspired by the warm sunny days we have been having over the past week. I even sat outside in short sleeves enjoying a coffee in the sun yesterday.
I have water coloured these images using an aqua painter and ink pads.  I have used the 1 3/4" circle punch for the image and it is mounted on a 2" circle cut out of Bashful Blue card stock using my Big Shot and the Circles #2 die.  Now there's a great combination of circle sizes for you to try out. 
Thanks for stopping by

Wow Anita, you've made some gorgeous cards with that set - can't wait to see the last one! Love this one in particular, the way you have the embossing on the bottom and followed it up with piercing, so clever!
