Sepia Tulips

This card is for one of the challenges at Power Poppy to celebrate World Cardmaking Day (which, this year, happened to fall on my birthday - how cool is that?!!)  This challenge is titled "Woot Woot for Tuts" - meaning the challenge is to try one of the Monday Tutorials on the Power Poppy Blog.  I chose the tutorial by the amazingly talented Allison Cope on Colouring in Sepia.  You can find it HERE.  I started with a piece of dark beige cardstock which I embossed with Cuttlebug's Woodgrain EF.  I wrapped some lace and dark brown ribbon around the bottom and layered it onto dark brown cardstock.  Then I die cut some of the dark brown cardstock with a Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco B - I made two and added them to the top corners.  Then I stamped the tulips and sentiment from Power Poppy's Dynamic Duos Peonies & Tulips set with Rich Cocoa Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, die cut it with a Spellbinders Labels Four and sponged around the edges with Versacolor Sand Beige ink.  I added the image piece with foam tape and a dark brown bow finished it off.

Copic Colours used were:  E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, E53, E55.

Thanks so much for coming to visit!
