Tulips from Amsterdam

I've just got back from a very short break in a fantastic hotel in a castle in Sussex. Although many of the fields and some of the castle grounds were flooded (which actually looked spectacular) , many spring flowers were shooting up.

This card is for my partner's mother, who enabled us to have our little holiday by having our son to stay.

The main image is from Papermania Wellington CD and I brought it into Silhouette Studio, added the text and cut it out in a label shape. I hand cut out two flowers and the tag and stuck them on with 3d foam. I was inspired by the song 'tulips from Amsterdam' and cut the windmill on the Silhouette. The background paper is from a CD called Sunshine and Laughter, which came free with a magazine.

I'd like to enter:

No spring flowers here in Oslo, it has just started snowing AGAIN.... Well, nothing I can do about that, but I can look at your lovely soft colored card and dream of spring... The 3d effect of the flowers is a nice touch!
