Tu-lips are better than one! EIC #33


Ok, I couldn't resist the title...I definitely inherited the corny gene from my mother (I won't tell you what I inherited from my father!) My card today is for the Etsy Inspired Challenge #33, and it is a beautiful store this week! Ashley always highlights such great stores on Etsy!! Opalescence is the store for this week's challenge, and she features gorgeous handspun yarns and jewelry. Fun for everyone!! I was inspired by this piece HERE. The thing that I love about inspiration challenges is that there is no right or wrong answer...the right brain side of me loves this!! I was drawn to these earrings because they are purple, my favorite color, and they are so dangly and dainty at the same time! And, for some crazy reason, I thought of tulips. Tulips are so strong and dainty at the same time, and it is a shame that they are only here for a short span of time.
I wanted to show you all the close up of the Shimmerz on the leaves as they don't stand out as well in the first picture. This stamp set by Firecracker Designs is such a great value at $8.99. All of Pamela's set come in red rubber, and there are many stamps in each set!! They are awesome! In this particular set, the tulips are separate from the leaves, so you can decide how you want them. I decided to stamp them and cut them out to attach them.

Paper: Lovely Lilac DSP and Wild Wasabi CS by Stampin' Up
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Lovely Lilac by Stampin' Up
