Spring Is In The Air - Mojo Monday 185

I really like this week's Mojo Monday sketch, and couldn't wait to use some of the new spring Graphic 45 paper that I bought (love the little bonneted birds in the print) and a spring stamp set from Just Rite stamps that I purchased this past winter.

I stamped my tulip images twice and coloured them in with copic markers. Then I cut up one of the images and paper pieced three of the tulips and part of the bow over top of the original image. After cutting out each piece I gently rolled them over a pencil to give them more dimension. On the largest tulip I also made some cuts with a craft knife along a couple of the inner petal lines. The bottom scallop border was created by using a 1 1/4" circle punch and layering the light and dark green circles. I topped it off with a beautiful Antiqued copper butterfly from CTMH.
