Pretty in purple...

 This card is sooooooo simple, but I actually really like it.

After adding my DSP to the front of my card, I punched a couple of holes (they were actually small slots) in preparation for adding a faux bow.

Once that was done, I die-cut a wildflower, a pussy willow twig and a leafy twig. I added them to my card front along with a heat-embossed sentiment. Then, I created my faux bow, and my card front was done.

I also put my DSP on the inside of my card, along with a wonky-stitched rectangle and a get well sentiment.

So simple, so quick, but I love the way it turned out.

Today I received some tulip bulbs from Holland. My stepdaughter in Germany sent them to me as a belated birthday present. They are a variety of types and colors, and I can't wait to get them planted and see them bloom next spring. I don't have the best of luck with tulips--they tend to only last a couple of years--but I really enjoy them anyway.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

When you have patterned paper that pretty, you can do a simple design. Yours works very well. Love the faux bow. I have a lot of trouble bow tying. Even the faux type.

Such pretty paper, and I love the die-cuts.

Has been a LONG time since I have done a faux bow. That is what I love about blogging, you get so many "old" new ideas. The die cuts are beautiful placed on the pretty patterned paper.
Anxious to see you tulips in bloom come spring, I have never planted tulips, no reason just have never done it.
