Springtime means tulips to me ......

Ribbon Girl are sponsoring this weeks challenge over at Just Magnolia and hAnglar sTanglar with a £10 gift voucher - the theme is Spring and this is my guest DT card. 

I coloured the cute image in with copics.  Tulips are my favourite springtime flower and they are featured on the background paper - Springtime by Pion which I got from my friend Jean 

I added a doohickey Magnolia swirl, and a cuttlebug corner all cut from green card plus peach coloured pearls from stash, 32mm cream vintage style fine cluny lace and peach seam binding ribbon.  The lace, ribbon and stickles are from here

The mulberry flowers are tangerine pretty blossoms from here plus other flowers from WOC, and the leaves are punched with my very useful MS punch!  I added a touch of stardust stickles to the flowers for extra springtime sparkle!

Well the weather here in the UK has been more like Summer than Spring and I hope it lasts for a few more days - make the most of it
See you soon, Mary G x
