Inspired Tulips - Papertrey Springtime Challenge

For today's Inspiration challenge on Split Coast Stef showed us Faviana Prom gowns. I was inspired by the color of this purple gown

I used tulips as my subject for the Papertrey Inspiration challenge. I was inspired by Kelly Lunceford's picture of her garden seen below.

I used the colors of vintage cream, ocean tides, plum pudding and lavender moon for my card. The tulip and dots below the sentiment are from the Wishing You set and the thank you is from the Beyond Basic Borders set.
What a wonderful day it was here today - sunny and warm - I got a lot of edging and mulching done in my front gardens - then I did some stamping - and tonight DH and I are off to a local symphony performance - a day full of good things!

Stamps: Wishing You & Beyond Basic Borders: PTI
Paper: Vintage Cream, Ocean Tides, Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon, TextStyles 2008 Bitty Dot Basics - all PTI
Ink: Plum Pudding, Ocean Tides: PTI, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Crystal Stickers pearls, foam dimensionals, Labels 4 Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, EK Success Wavy punch, Lavender Moon satin Ribbon: PTI, corner punch: SU
