CAS Tulips for Friends.....

Hello everyone: I have a card I made for the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #163, here is my card.

This beautiful Tulip is from a retired Flourishes stamp set called "Tulips for Friends", I stamped it onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with my aqua painter and SU markers in Real Red, Garden Green and Chocolate Chip. 
The challenge consists of 3 colors, Real Red, Mint Macaroon and Cucumber Crush, I used the Garden Green to color the leaves, the frame around this beautiful bloom is cut out of Mint Macaroon CS. The sentiment is from the same set and it's stamped in Real Red ink.
I added some Rhine Stones in a color that is very close to Cucumber Crush, the rules of this challenge is that, if you do not have this specific colors of the challenge, you can substitute with a color that resembles the one they ask for, which I think it's really fabulous.
Here is a picture of the finish inside.


Here is a picture of the stamp sets I used, just so you can see how they look like, they've been loved for a long time.
This picture is looking outside my window onto the back yard, it's snowing, (sigh!)
I used the little tulips on the left side to embellish the inside of my card. This is another beautiful set by Flourishes.
And here are the colors from CAS Colours and Sketches.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
