MHK Designs Tulips and Butterflies

     Today starts the May/June challenge over at MHK Designs and here's our inspiration photo:


Remember, you can use the colors, the photo, 
a specific thing within the photo, 
or a combination of everything.
If you use an image from MHK Designs
then the theme is "Anything Goes"
whether you use the inspiration photo or not.

Here's what I did using "Tulip of Thanks."


     I printed two of  the flowers, die cutting one and fussy cutting the other.  I colored with ProMarkers and, though it doesn't show very well in the photo (try enlarging it for a better look), added glitter to the top one.  I mounted that flower on dimensional dots after cutting away the leaf and adhering it so that it pointed in the other direction.  

     The three, green, CS rectangles are also all die cut with my Pinpoint Rectangles die set from Memory Box.  I scattered die cut butterflies (also Memory Box) across the card, adding pearls to them for the bodies.  The final touch, making this almost a vintage card, was the lace and stitched ribbon.

     Challenges:

     I hope you'll come and play in our challenge this month.  It runs through June 15 and you can use any image from any company with the inspiration photo or you can do "Anything Goes" if you use an image from MHK Designs.  Hope to see you there.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
