Pink Tulips Mother's Day

Hi all, we went camping for a few days to get away and see the beautiful display of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country.  Pictures do not do them justice, the color and smell of the waterfalls of blue that cover the hills are spectacular!  We had a great time and are rested and refreshed!  Below is a picture.


I finally finished this card for the Fred She Said Blog Hop and here are the details:

Welcome to our FOURTH "FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!! If you just happened to drop by my blog and you are not aware of this wonderful event taking place, please go back to the "FRED SHE SAID" blog here ( http://fred-she-said.blogspot.com/  ) and start your hop!

Please, we would love it if you commented on our posts.

Along the way, please leave a comment on the blogs, follow the instructions at the end of the blog hop, at the Challenge blog, to make your entry and your name will go in for a draw for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store!
Here is my "Fred She Said" creation:



I used the tulips that Tracey created for Stars and Stripes Operation Write Home  for this mother's day card.  The image is printed out on water color paper four times and then water colored with my Tombow markers.  I cut out a base layer from one of the images and then choose layers from each of the other three to layer and pop up the image of the tulips.  I had some pretty embossed pink paper that I purchased at a local art store and I inked the edges with gold.  The pink card stock was stitched to it and then lace trim, wide pink ribbon, velvet ribbon and sheer picot ribbon was added for a frilly feminine touch. 
Next I cut the base for the tulips out of my Nestabilities and added faux gold stitches on the panel and along the top edge of the ribbons. Pink pearls and glitter on the lace finish off this pretty in pink card. I really love coloring Tracey's beautiful flowers!!!  She has some great new images that I can't wait to play with, so hop on and check them out!
