Picked just for you

What fabulous weather it has been for a holiday weekend!  My tulips have been and gone really quickly in the warmth, so I've coloured a Fred She Said parrot tulip that won't fade in the heat:). I used one of the sheets with extras printed and added a couple of layers of decoupage.   My favourite tulips  are the greeny-pinky ones, so I've added some spring green Prima paper, an embossed die cut circle and a die-cut sentiment, which was a freebie with Do Craft magazine.  There are some Dew Drops and some ribbon and that's it.
Back to work tomorrow, hope you've all enjoyed the weekend as much as I have:).
