This must be a record ...

3 challenges with 1 card - don't think I have attempted that before.  I originally coloured these tulips for the recent Sweet Stop challenge, but would have had to cut it down to fit on the card, which wasn't going to happen.  So when I saw the colours for Play Date Cafe, I was delighted I would be able to use it.

There maybe afew more posts today as it is a dreary old Sunday in Brisbane - perfect for cardmaking.

  1. Beautiful colouring. Beautiful embossing. Beautiful design. Just Beautiful!
    I had forgotten what rain like this looked like. . . and I have to go out instead of staying home to make cards. :-(

  2. You're so good at colouring! I'm not a colour-er (that's not a word, I know!) but I really love seeing it done well because it is really effective! This composition is really pretty too. And you're going to have to stop the enabling-my wish list is quite large enough! Now I have to add those beautiful wplus9 stamps! Waltzingmouse is first though as I've been eyeing those up for ages now! I think crafters should be given money to buy stamps, like they do with alcoholics and drug addicts-our addiction is just as all comsuming I think!!

    Such a pretty card :)

  3. This is SO beautiful! Your coloring is wonderful and it's one of my favorite images from PTI.

  4. Very pretty and oh so clever a combination for THREE challenges. You have my admiration! Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Yike! I somehow missed seeing this one earlier! Glad I did see it, as it is my favorite--just gorgeous coloring and composition! Love the mod-looking accents on the side and that beautiful trimmed frame, too.

  6. BEAUTIFUL Cassandra! You've done a marvelous job with the tulips...can't blame you for not wanting to cut them down!!!

  7. Such a crisp and pretty card! YOu've colored those blossoms beautifully. Thanks for joining us at The Play Date Cafe this week! :)

  8. Such a beautiful card - the tulips are beautifully coloured (can see why you didn't cut them down). I really like the embossed stamps - looks lovely! Here's mine!

  9. WOWOOOOWZA! Love that stamping with the ribbons--what a clever take on this sketch! Great sentiment and beautiful colors!
