Tulip Time: Oh Happy Day

When I first got Tulip Time, I stamped and die cut 
a stack of flowers so that I would have them ready 
to make a variety of cards. My first card here, used the 
tulip trio along with some single flowers to create a bouquet. 
For this card, I used 5 single flowers and arranged them 
in a mason jar vase.The background was created by 
sponging aqua, pink and yellow inks and then adding
 'sprinkles' (Tinsel & Tags) with gold embossing powder. 
The front panel was cut with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangle 
die and mounted onto an aqua card base.

Friendship Jar was stamped with a light grey ink 
and then stamped with aqua and green inks using 
Crackled Mini stamp. The jar was fussy cut, a gold string 
was tied around the jar and a Tiny Tag was stamped 
with the polka dot frame and sentiment (Mini Blooms) 
and added to the jar. This was mounted over the 
 floral arrangement using foam dimensional tape. 
Three brass adhesive dots were attached at 
the bottom of the card front.
