Tulip card

Hello my scrappy friends!  Quick post this evening since I'm tired.  House is clean, ready for my son's 15th family birthday party on Saturday. did that happen?!?

This card is for a friend who lost her husband last month.  I want to make her and her teenage daughter a card each month for a while, just so they know that someone is always thinking of them.

I used my SU! Tranquil Tulips stamps set for the tulips (obviously!), Avant-Garden for the dots all around the card, and Orange Blossom for the sentiment...the entire sentiment reads "out of sight....but never our of mind".

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Paper Play Sketches 
Paper Play Sketches: Color Challenge  -- Green and purple for the stems and flowers, yellow/orange for the dots all around the card.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge
Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge: #224 sketch -- Loosely based on this sort of got away from me but this sketch inspired me to make this card.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
