My sister has been giving me some stastic about why I haven't been creating, so I buckled down today and jumped in with both feet.  This is a Lockhart Stamp Company image called Tulips I received from my good friend, Barb, over at The Buzz.  Thanks, Barb!  I colored this image with my copics and knew I wanted to use Ocean colored cardstock from CTMH to match the vibrant blue.  It was hard for me not to use ribbon on this card.  I always fall back on ribbon, so I tried other embellishments today.

I wondered what pattern paper I could find that had the colors in the image and I found this striped pattern from the Tickled Pink promo pack offered in May by CTMH.  In addition, the small white flower brads and the white scallop tag came from this same promo pack.  I used a chocolate butterfly rub-on from the Nature's Ambiance rub-ons.  

I got out my Martha Stewart punches for the lattice borderl and the floral lace border.  I finished it off with the "thanks" sentiment from CTMH called Say It In Style.

I had fun creating today and got my mojo going again.  Thanks for the kick, Connie!

Happy Stamping!
