The Flower Challenge #13

The number 13 has long been a significant one in my life ... this time I hope it works its magic for the WIN!!

The Flower Challenge is celebrating its 1st birthday with its 13th challenge - woo HOO!!  I do love this fabulous group of talented card makers - how could I not play along?


Tom and I were married on the 13th.  It is unbelievable to me how close we are to our 25th!  In honor of my wedding flower I give you my favorite bloom: the lovely Tulip!  Though I carried white, they're so pretty in pink!


Congratulations to The Flower Challenge on their very 1st Birthday!  

=]  Michele

Supplies:  Wplus9 + SSS Humble and Kind set; Pale Rose Bazzill paper from E.H.  Copic coloring [on Bristol paper - who knew?]

Oh so beautiful Michele, it's the subtle pale pinks and that bold sentiment doesn't it add such an amazing Wow factor!

I can see why you love these beautiful tulips in pink, especially how you colored them! LOVE your subtle details, too and your pastel pink card base is just perfect! Looks like a winner to me, Michele!!!

This is so pretty, Michele! I love that you placed the tulips upside down, and put the sentiment (you) in a banner. These elements add a visual "punch" to the card and make the soft & elegant card look dynamic! Hideko
p.s. Good luck with the prize from The Ton. :-)

What a lovely card, Michele. Those tulips are so pretty in pink and I also really like the soft pink cardstock you used. The sentiment is lovely (and I adore the song by Tim McGraw that uses that lyric). There's a little bit of texture on the leaves and flower petals. So subtle but lovely! Hugs! :)

Gorgeous card , Michelle! Wow almost 25! We are closer to the next big one, lol. The 13 is a very good and important date for us too for many reasons. One of my girls were also married on the 13th!

How did you do such tiny dots of white??? Those details really make the floral image sing, your so clever!! Such amazing colouring and love how the cardstock is a slightly paler version of the flowers too. I'm so glad you joined us this month for our 1st birthday at The Flower Challenge and will keep my fingers crossed for you for a win!!
