Fusion Card Challenge #8

Hi everyone!  I hope my US friends enjoyed a long Memorial Day weekend.  I was at my cabin and spent the weekend with some great friends and family!
 
The card I'm sharing today I colored on Saturday before I left, but didn't have time to finish it.  I wanted to enter the Papertrey Ink blog hop, but didn't get it done in time.  But I could still enter it in the Fusion Card Challenge!  I loved the photo this week.  It gave me a chance to use a couple of PTI stamp sets I have never used.
 
I just love these tulips!  I colored them with various RV, YR, BG, and YG copics.  This is a very large stamp and I hade to make the card 4.25 x 6.  It didn't leave much room for embellishments.  As it is, I used Sweet Threads dp from Basic Grey which is hard to see.  I managed to add a bow and some pearls in the corner.  I also added some sparkle with a sakura glitter pen.  Hard to see in the picture.
 
That's it for me!  Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!
