Spring Is Coming

It is all about the start of Spring with a bit of a masculine feel for the "Less is More" challenge (lol) ... Stampers Anonymous meets Hero Arts
I used a plain white card as base. The text stamp is from Stampers Anonymous stamped with Brilliance ink. The tulip is part of a Hero Arts stamp set. The image was stamped on white slightly textured card, it was cut out and coloured with colour pencils (Koh-i-noors). It was then layered onto the card with foam pads. The finishing touch is a little fastener. Have a wonderful start into the Spring season! Petra.

I also link it to the Spring Flower Blogger's Challenge:

Hmmm, I guess red tulips to work for men - but who cares really - this is just a plain old fabulous card! I love the juxtaposition of text and tulip - it totally works!
