A Bouquet of Tulips

Click on image to enlarge.

Looks like I'm a little lop-sided on my card this time. Of course, I'm a little lop-sided myself, so what else should I expect. LOL. I'm really pleased with this card, even if it's not as elaborate as most of my cards are. However, I hate the reason that I had to make the card, as a friend lost her brother in death last week. He has suffered with Alzheimer's for several years and didn't always know them, but it's still sad.

One of the challenges I'm entering this in has a recipe, that you're not supposed to add anything else but what they have listed. Let me tell you it was really hard not to get to use more than one piece of designer paper or flowers (I was almost going into withdrawal). LOL.

This is one of those cards that the paper does most of the work for you. It's K&Co.; of course, and the image was a freebie from Fred She Said some time ago. The rest is pretty self-explanatory.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Stamp TV's CSS Limited Supply Bloghop - recipe

Penny's Paper Crafty-Challenge - pink & green
Daring Cardmakers - thinking of you
Marks Finest Papers - friendship
2 Sisters Challenge - sketch
