Our Daily Bread Designs, Tulips, Tulip die, Lavish Layers, Circle Scalloped Rectangles, Pierced Rectangles, designed by Chris Olsen

Good Morning Friends!!  I hope this day finds you well and your are enjoying spring air and sun wherever you live as it is now officially least in the USA!!

The first thing I think of in spring is Sunshine, flowers, birds, green grass, Easter, and the signs of new life!!!

With this in mind, I enjoyed creating a card with ODBD's Tulips and Coordinating Tulip Die for this month's ODBD Anything Goes with ODBD Stamps challenge reminder post!!  I embossed my flower in white and then sponged the flower to give it color.

ODBD Stamps Used: Tulips

The flowers were sponged rather than colored and then die cut.
It was a lot of fun and used a bit less more ink then using copics.  

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Julie, Robin, and Diana.
If you would like to join us, you may add your creation until April 2 on the ODBD blog linky here.

Thanks for visiting and for your comments!!
