Grow, Seek, Go, See, Be...



It's a Mojo Monday kind of Thursday! I was in the mood to make some springtime sunshine and when I saw this week's Mojo sketch, I just had to give it a whirl.


I have been wanting to try out the new Tiptoe Through the Tulips die set from Taylored Expressions and I paired it with this lovely sentiment from the set, New Beginnings. There is nothing so pretty as yellow tulips growing on a field of green!


For some added dimension, I die-cut multiples of the tulips dies and popped them up over the stems after sponging ink all around for some depth. I stamped the beautiful sentiment and created my own "tag" element, sponging on more ink around the edges. A ribbon treatment, a pretty button, and a bit of twine later, my card was done and I think I'll go outside and soak up some sun.
