Watercolor Tulips "Happy Birthday" card

Hello Crafters!

A couple of weeks ago my wonderful Mother-in-Law celebrated her birthday.  For her birthday I made a bright and cheerful spring inspired birthday card.
The card used the lovely watercolor tulip stamp from Penny Black (4384K "promise me").  Distress Markers in Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Abandoned Coral and Candied Apple were used on the stamp.  It was die cut using Memory Box Stitched Square Layers (see Scrapy Land for more Stitched Die sets).
The tulips were mounted on patterned paper from Graphic 45's Botanical Tea.  Pleated material (Recollections) was adhered as shown.  A wee white bow was added to the center.
The inside was Quietfire Design's lovely Happy Birthday stamped using the Abandoned Coral marker.  A piece of Graphic 45 Botanical Tea was adhered to the bottom.
Thank you for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the card. :)
Have a happy, crafty day.
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
