Tulips for you!

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a card for you that I made as a Guest Designer for the new challenge over at Raise the Bar called,  'In the Garden'.  I have entered this card in Paper Sundae's Challenge - Spring Blossoms.

This little cutie is by Magnolia and she was stamped on neenah cardstock with memento ink and coloured with copics.  The design papers are by First Edition called 'Love Letters'.  The fence is made with a MS border punch and I added some little green rhinestones for dimension. The sentiment was wet embossed and made into a sign post with a toothpick.   I used stickles on her apron, and on her hair tie.  Her shoes were made shiny with liquid glass and I added 3 pink rhinestones to the DP in the bottom square, in the center of the flowers.  The frame around her is a Marianne die and lastly,  I tied it all together with two bows.  Isn't she sooo cute!

I know that's not the way I look when I'm in my garden, if you can get me in it first!  I hope she's given you some inspiration to either join the challenge over at Raise the Bar or get your own gardens started!  Thanks for stopping by!
