Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Bouquet

photo source:

We have a new sponsor, Penny Black, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Bouquet!  A randomly selected participant in the Bouquet challenge will have their choice of a Penny Black gift certificate, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

For my card I honed in on the gorgeous red flower in the bouquet.  I used Penny Black's Promise Me tulip stamp, which I adore as tulips are my favorite flower!  I framed the image with a punched border and added a sentiment and two butterflies to pull it all together.  

Listed below is a list of all designers' blogs to provide you with more inspiration!

Ooooh, so CAS and gorgeous! Love those red tulips! Mine are just starting to pop their little noses out of the ground, so will be a while before they are in full bloom like these beauties!

I am rather new to cardmaking and probably never would have thought to make black butterflies but you have made this work so beautifully together with the tulips.

I saw this challenge the other day and used this same stamp to do a card. I love your pink tulips, Marisa. The tulips have been so pretty here this year. Now I need to get a blog together to go with the card and enter the challenge! Hope all is well with you.
