Best Wishes

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a fun tic-tac-toe challenge for you:
No automatic alt text available.
And here is my card:
 I used the middle column: eyelets, paper piecing, and anniversary.  I also used yellow and blue and though I don't actually have any dew drops, I used clear texture drops on some of the leaves to look like actual dew drops.  You can see them a little better in the photo below.
This is one of my absolute favorite images for paper piecing; the vase looks stunning in so many different patterns.  I just got my new yellow set of spectrum noir markers and it was perfect timing, because these tulips look fabulous in yellow!  And I got to use up some scraps on this one, too.  All the papers on this card are part of my favorite 2 paper packs that are almost all gone (sigh) and are mostly just little strips but it was perfect for this fun layout.  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week. Make sure you hop on over to The House Blog to see what the rest of the DT did with this challenge.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Vase of Tulips" and "Best Wishes"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"; MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle
Darice: damask embossing folder

Very pretty - love all your elements you used. You and Patti used the same image but two entirely different looking cards. This is one of my favorite images.

This is such an awesome design, Heather. I especially love the way you used the sentiment along the curved edge of the die. Your coloring is fantastic on those tulips, too. Great card.
