Sharon issued a challenge for the Dare To Get Dirty challenges to make a card that is simple, but packs a bunch of punch by using a gorgeous image and a few other touches. I think this card fills the bill.
The image by itself is so pretty that the card doesn't need much else. I colored this one with copics and mounted it on black. I added a little bit of rub on faux stitiching and a couple of score lines at the bottom. I also clipped all four corners of the card. I really like how the score line breaks for the sentiment.
The tulip image is from Wood-n-Paper, Ink. I do not know who makes the "my friend" stamp.
Again, thanks for looking!
