Tulips

Hello! It's been a hectic week, but I managed some time for stamping.  How fun!  One of the things I miss most about living in Amsterdam is seeing the beautiful tulip fields, and the many colours of tulips sold in the flower markets.  Tulips are such happy and cheerful flowers.

The tulip fields - a view from the train in Amsterdam

One of my favourite tulips - the "Moulin Rouge", at a flower show
Here's my card :

This beautiful tulips image is from the Unity set Tulips and Daisies and I used Copics to colour the image :

Watering can - C00, C1, C3
Tulips - Y11, Y13, Y17
Leaves - YG61, YG63, YG67

Once again, I'm linking this to the Unity Friends with Flair post as well as Simon Says Stamp Happy Mail challenge for this week.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Kary
