Another week behind us and another challenge at Paper Lovin' Gals. Isn't this picture just beautiful? I have always loved tulips, I am not sure if it had anything to do with growing up in a part of Australia where they just didn't grow, so they were extra special. Luckily now I live in a part of the country where they grow beautifully, and every year Canberra puts on Floriade, an amazing spectacular of flowers, a lot of them tulips. Writing this post I realise I could have easily done a scrap page with some of the many photos I have from my yearly trip to Floriade. But instead I chose to make a card, and a card that doesn't have tulips! I just wanted to use the general flower theme from this week's picture and capture the soft yellow of the flowers in the background. What about this picture inspires you? Come and join in this week with a creation inspired by the photo.
When I see tulips I think of spring, so I am also entering this card in the Hand Stamped Sentiments "spring" challenge. It is hard to think about spring at the moment, as in this part of the world we are in autumn, with leave falling off trees and the weather getting all cold. I chose the Bordering on Romance flower for the stamped image, however I did trim part of the flower so it would fit more neatly in my framelits die. The DSP is also from our Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue and is called Attic Boutique, it has some lovely soft prints.
