The ladies at Less is More challenged us to create a clean and simple spring-themed card for this week's challenge.
For me, tulips are the quintessential spring flower. Right now, even though it was snowing last night, my tulips are pushing through the ground. When they bloom, they will fill my garden with many shades of pink and purple
When I was growing up, though, the tulips in our garden came in two colors - red and yellow. Spring evenings would often find the neighborhood kids gathered in our yard for a game of hide and seek or kick the can, and we would often get 'a talking to' for trampling Mom's tulips!
I've had this Hero Arts tulip stamp for years, and I don't think I've ever made a card with it. I knew I had to go with either red or yellow, so I chose yellow, which I think is a springy sort of color. There is nothing new or fancy about this layout, but it works for me.
I think it is a cheery sort of card, and I will pop it in the mail to my 93 year old grandmother who just had a pacemaker procedure. I'm trying to be better about actually sending cards I make, rather than just popping them in a drawer!
