Sending You Flowers

For the At Joan's Garden's Challenge this week, we are to create a card that uses something that is represented in each letter in the word TULIPS.

 I used a texture embossing folder for the T --intricate swirl by The Paper Studio,
U is in the sentiment stamp Thank U a Stampin Up Round Array Stamp and punch set.  L is represented in the lavender brick background which is an M-bossiblities Folder El-015 (brick and bark) brushed with Dusty Concord distressing ink by Tim Holtz. L is represented by the leaves that are part of the Flower Pot  Heartfelt Creations  die set  ( HCD  732) that came today from (I-item from Joan)  At Joan's Gardens!  The P is a purple button, and for Pearls and the S is for Flower Soft.  I used the Fuchsia flower Soft  on SU punched and stacked flowers.  The tags, flowers and sentiment stamp are "S"pritzed with Champagne colored glitter spritz, and the bottom of the lip of the flower pot is touched with a gold metallic brush.  Core-dinations shimmer and brown papers are sanded on this 5x7 card.  There's a little punched tulip in the corner (Fiskers).  Joan carries everything except the SU and Paper Studio products to complete a card like this one. The cute flower pot die has a TON of possibilities. Thanks for hurrying it to me, Joan.  I was inspired by Selma's Flower Pot card where she used the pot itself as a shape card. That's next!
