Tulip with Tulip Frame Sympathy

Today I'm huddling inside the house to avoid the below zero temps. It's crazy out there and I, for one, will have none of it! I just try to keep in mind that it was in the sixties just a few days ago. We're looking at temps around -20 tonight with a wicked windchill. I know it's nothing for those of you from "real winter" climes, but we don't do this here. Extraordinary winters are a great part of Colorado. Who knows, I may be out in short sleeves again by the weekend. Anywhoo, enough weather talk....The other day, while stamping the inside of a card, I came up with the color combination for this tulip. I really like the little accents in Early Espresso to contrast with the bright feel of Daffodil Delight. Once it was stamped, I knew that the Tulip Frame Folder was just the ticket. What I didn't know was that I still can't shake my addiction to the Vanilla Satin Ribbon. It's true. But I didn't want to wrap over the top of the frame, so I took out my Horizontal Slot Punch and made a way to lace the ribbon through. Granted, much of the ribbon is hidden behind the Espresso this way, but I still like the effect. Would you believe that I'm waiting to stamp the inside of this card until my Thanks for Caring set arrives with my order later this week. It was my first Sale-a-bration order and was embarrassingly LARGE. Expect to see a whole bunch of new toys in use soon! Speaking of SAB, the set used to make this tulip is one of many sets from the catalog that you can get free for spending $50. Three Little Words is a lovely little set with sentiments for all occasions. I know at least one stamper who has already added it to her collection thanks to SAB... :)
