Watering Can Tulips (ITDK image)

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to my new Bloglovin' follower - Candice Fields - so nice to have you here!

Today I'm sharing a card I made with the May Digi of the Month from Imagine That... digis by Kris. There are two digis this month, and I chose to make my card with Watering Can Tulips. This is a progressive challenge. Since I participated last month using the April digi, I received the May digi for free! You can join at any time; see details here Thank you, Kris, for your free digis!


I like to use pre-coloured images when I don't have much time to spend in my craftroom, like this week!  I die-cut the image with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares and used an inlaid die-cut technique to keep this card one layer, flat for mailing.  The turquoise panel was embossed with Cuttlebug Simple Flowers.  I stamped a thank-you sentiment from Impression Obsession Sentiments 1 clear stamps, added a butterfly charm, and finished it off with a decorative corner of tiny pearls (Flourish with a Bling).

I would also like to support these fun challenges:  Craft Your Passion AG 2/3; Crafting by Designs One Layer 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 3/3; Deep Ocean Flowers UE; DL.ART May AG UE 1/day; Dragonfly Dreams Lauralcraft How does your Garden Grow UE; Fussy and Fancy Lots of Flowers UE;  HIMCR HIMCR03NSD May Flowers 2/3; HIMCR HIMCR02NSD Let's Get Digital 3/3; HIMCR HIMCR05NSD Die Cuts 3/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack FFC AG 1/3; Kitty Bee Aloha Friday In the Garden 1/2; Loves Rubberstamps AG UE; Mema's AG 2/3; Not Just Cards AG UE; Paperbabe Stamps AG; Papertake Weekly AG Optional Twist No Patterned Paper 2/5; Penny's Paper-Crafty AG 1/3; Scribbles Designs Spring has Sprung 3/3; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; Suzy Bee's Bloomin' AG No Patterned Papers UE; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Add a Charm 1/2; Tuesday Throwdown Flowers for Her 1/3; V's Sweet Ideas Emboss It 2/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5

  32. Kitty - you have been making such lovely and fun cards!! Loved the Dad's day off one and this tulip one is simply gorgeous!!!! I am sorry for the lack of my commenting lately - I have been struggling and doing some soul searching about life, my faith, and my place in this world so I have not been on the computer much!! I have looked through your awesome posts with all your amazing creations and rather than go backwards and comment on all of them I am going to start fresh!! Hope you are doing well and that you know I appreciate you - thought it was so cool that we both won over at STAMPlorations!!! Fun, huh?!??!!!! Take care and I promise to try and keep up better!!!

  39. Love that blue, since that image was precolored you matched it perfectly. This card makes me happy! I just uncovered some UM kitty images that I've never used. I suspect I'll need to at least try them out although I hate UM images (these have no cling).

  49. I'm back with a different hat on this time. Thanks so much for entering your card into last month's stamp of the month challenge over at Imagine That! Digis by Kris. I hope you'll get the chance to join us again this month.

    Oh and thanks for the heads up on the two wins. I rely on Paper Playful and since both those challenges are odd dates, I'd probably have missed out on the prize if you hadn't told me. I appreciate you keeping your eye out for my name. It means a lot!
