Happy Birthday Tulips


Hi everyone!  I've been on a birthday card run here in the studio this week.  I make cards for my sister's wine store and all she ordered this time was birthday cards!  So I've been making two at a time.  Today's card uses the PTI Make it Monday challenge of embossing and inking a background. I embossed the retro background with white embossing powder  then inked the background with mint julep and aquamist.  Here's the second one.  Can you tell I'm loving the new Tulip Time set?  I can't put it down!


Thanks for stopping by!

You have been busy, and both cards are beautiful. I'm sure they'll sell fast. Can't wait to receive my tulip dies as I've seen so many great cards using that set.
