Dancing in the Tulips

Good evening everyone.  What a great two days I have had, and tomorrow will make three.  I have actually managed to finish a card and make one.  I've gone for a walk two days in a row.  I've done a couple loads of laundry, but pretty much ignored the rest of the house work.  So I guess tomorrow is a cleaning day. 
This card started out a big old boo boo.  When I scored it to fold in half I somehow scored off centre.  So when I folded the edges didn't line up.  But do not fear, my creative juices were working overtime.  With the card open I stamped with a little tulip stamp three times down the right edge. I then placed a piece of vellum over the stamped image and closed the card. This was so I could see where the image was stamped. From here I restamped the tulip lining up over the image already there.  The image is now complete when the card is closed.  The frame on the front was done using a die cut, placing a rubber mat in so that it embossed and didn't cut through.  Before lifting the die off I inked around and the inside.  I then stamped my image.  All images were colored with Spectrum Noir blendable pencils. The sentiment is an outline sticker in silver.
