Purple Tulips

Hi, and welcome to another What If Challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week Wendy has given us a great sketch to work with:
I love sketches; it means I don't have to think about coming up with my own.  : )  As soon as I started with this one, I knew what image and color scheme I wanted to go with, but other than that it came out way different than I had planned.  But definitely in a good way.  I'm totally in love with how it turned out.
I have some gorgeous deep purple (almost black) tulips in my garden in the spring, and that's why I wanted to color these beauties up in purple.  And yellow is the perfect complement to purple.  I used up a piece of cream sheer ribbon from my bits and pieces stash (which makes me happy) and I even used some patterned paper that I've had (literally) forever!  I did some masking on the sentiment to get it to fit on my "banner".
Thanks for stopping by!  Head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the DT has done with this sketch.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "912W Tulip Bouquet" and "1113D Birthday"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Ovals, large", "Radiant Rectangles" and banner; MFT corner bracket.
