Simple tulip

Hello! Still getting back into the groove, but here's a card I made with one of my I Brake for Stamps images. I do love the flowers of spring; tulips, hyacinth, crocus and daffodil! Can't wait for the real ones! This one is called simply, TULIP, and I guess that describes it! I used white, apricot appeal and apricot appeal dp from Stampin' Up to keep the card clean and crisp. I didn't shadow or 'ground' the image which is really strange for me. I may still need to go back and add a ground color! I started out CASeing a card for the SU Featured stamper (last week, I think) and went with what the artist had done on her card . You can use my code SAVE10CHERYL to get 10% of your order!
I used copics on the image, as I'm sure you know. The colors are as follows:
YGo1, YG01, YG25
Y21, 31, 35 and 38
YR16, E19 and E08
(A sweet follower, Nancy Parker, asked if I would be influenced by the colors I saw in the Caribbean for awhile. Nancy, I think so!!)

thanks for coming by today! Have a great day! See you soon!

I love this card. It may be simple, but still is a beautiful creation. It is perfect for spring time giving. I hope it brings spring on much sooner as this winter has been going on way too long.
