The Paper Players #383 and The Flower Challenge #18

I'm as eager for Spring as The Paper Players who have a Spring photo for our inspiration this week.
I immediately thought of my PTI tulips and wanted another go with my Polychromos. This is the resulting card.
After coloring on the Toned Gray paper, I thought the card needed something else so I cut some copy paper with the tulip die and used it as a mask so I could stamp the background with the MFT burlap stamp.  The sentiment is from Jillian Vance.  I still need pencil practice but it's so much fun coloring that I don't mind.

I'm also going to send this card to The Flower Challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes".

Thanks for dropping by.
