Inspired by music!

So, today's challenge on SCS was to be inspired by music. I really wanted to use this new stamp being released by Treehouse stamps on March 7, and the song that immediately came to my head was . . . Tiptoe through the Tulips. Now, or course the one singing it was Tiny Tim from back in the day. He was on Laugh-In as well as The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. If you are too young to remember this, here is a link to the video. I must warn you, once you see it, it will be indelibly etched on your brain.

Hard to believe such a thing could inspire such a beautiful card. I love these tulips. I colored them with WWC and then went over them with pastels. I love the look this leaves on a colored image. I matted it on black for some pop and then onto the regal rose. All of this was mounted onto the barely banana background which was embossed with my cuttlebug embossing folder, birds and swirls. Doesn't it just say spring to you? I love spring flowers, and tulips are some of my favorites. Did you know they continue to grow, even after they are cut! Isn't that bizarre? They are awesome flowers.

I hope you enjoy my card. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
