Vase of Tulips

Welcome to another What If Wednesday? on The House That Stamps Built challenge blog.  This week we have an awesome sketch for you.  Here it is:
Here is my take on the sketch.  I totally had a Christmas card in mind, even knew which image I was going to use, but as I was taking another quick look through my new Repeat Impressions stamps that I just got, I found this gorgeous image.  I know it's a bit "spring-y" but I had to use it anyway.
I've got a fun little tip for you: if you don't have matching card stock (I didn't have any the right shade of green), use one of the markers you used to color you image to color the edges of the die cut.  Perfect match!  I did that on both mats.  Now hop on over to The House blog to see how the rest of the DT has used this sketch.  I'd love to what you do with it.

Sugar Pea Designs #21--anything goes
As You Like It--Favorite: brights or pastels (& why); I definitely choose brights any day.  Pastels are not my thing at all.
