Spring Flowers Card

Hey everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2.  This week Pam has selected Spring Flowers as our theme.  We are just now seeing the first blooming trees this month, and I can't wait to see more!  I LOVE this time of year.  Down here in Louisiana, we don't see Spring for very long before the intense summer heat kicks in, so we try to really enjoy it.
My inspiration for this card came from this sketch:
My card is made using DCWV Citrus Stack....I love this stack!  I got this a few years ago from JoAnn's.  
My red tulip is cut from Create-a Critter 2 and my blue flowers came from Kate's ABC's.

Create a Critter 2 - red tulip cut at 2.5 in.
Kate's ABCs - blue flowers cut at 2.5 in. (one flipped)
DCWV Citrus Stack
Stampin Up cardstock
My Creative Time-Sentiment
Martha Stewart border punch
Peachy Keen Sweet and Silly Face Assortment
Carribean Baker's Twine
White Gel Pen

I finished off the card with a 1 inch strip of pattern paper on the inside.

We hope you will join us this week over at Bitten by the Bug 2!!
