Special Day

This is my first card for the Hero Arts Monthly challenge (June2010B). I used color layering for this card. The tulips come from Hero Arts Antique engraving (CL427), the scrip comes from Hero Arts Old Letter Writing (S4878, and the sentiment comes from Hero Arts CL266. I started out with a white piece of paper and destressed it a bit with Antique Linen Destress ink. I stamped the tulips using the color layering technique and then I made a mask to cover the tulips so that i could stamp over them with the Old Letter Writing stamp. I didn't have any ribbon to match the tulips, so I took white ribbon and dyed it with Memories Ruby Dye Ink. I laced the ribbon through the sentiment and then added the pearls.
