Winnie & Walter Spring HELLO

I am so excited that Winnie & Walter Stamps are celebrating a second birthday and sending my Congratulations!  They are celebrating in a huge way with quite the bash including challenges and prizes! 

I made a card for Heather P's colour challenge where she is looking for a Spring colour theme of coral, aqua to turquoise and chartreuse/lime.  I was looking at my floral sets and saw the tulips from Addie's Garden and then the daisy centre made me think of...how about a Parrot Tulip?  So, I decided to use two of the stamps fromAnna's Flora (a stem and a leaf) and the daisy centre from Addie's Garden to create my coral Parrot Tulips.  Yes, just a few impressions of the daisy centre with some Abandoned Coral DI to make the tulips and then I dotted with a fine black marker to give the hint of the black fringes on the petals.  I stamped the stems and my tulip leaves are the leaf from Anna's Flora that I inked selectively.  They look exactly like tulip leaves!  I coloured the leaves with a Zig marker.
My sentiment is the wonderful hello cutaway that I sponged with DI's in Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers and inlaid into the card front making this a one layer card.  I stamped the friend sentiment from The Big, The Bold & the Happy set in Memento Tuxedo black in what I thought was the perfect little nook between the h and the second l of hello.  I love how all of the sentiments can be tucked here and there! 

I am also offering up to The One Layer Simplicity challenge where Ardyth is hosting this month and looking for a one layer card with the word friend on the card.
Thanks for stopping by and as always, I appreciate your visits :)))
