Polka Dots and Tulips

Spring is finally here!!! I can actually see the bare grass and ground and the snow is almost all melted :) Now I really wish I had gotten those tulip bulbs planted before it froze last fall... 
I guess stamped tulips will have to do ;)

This fun color combo just evolved. I colored the image and went from there! And the Daffodil Delight ribbon had to come out and play since the sun was beckoning. Baja Breeze for the blue skies and some Poppy Parade to match the tulips. And I just felt like doing some polka dots because they are so darn happy :) The big dots are the center of the "O"  of LOVE from Filled with love. I saved it and I think I get more use out of that dot than any other stamp in that set, lol!


Inside I did the multicolored dots, and then just needed something more, so I stamped the top portion of the tulip basket in Early Espresso over the top of the dots. I left this blank so I can use it for whatever I want.

I may have to make a few more of this one, I can see lots of uses for it!
