You should have arrived here from Sharada's Blog

If not, make sure you begin the HOP from the INDIAN CRAFT ROOM! 

Now, about my card...

The back ground stamp is from Hero arts, the tulips from PaperTrey ink and the sentiment from Verses Rubber stamps.
I first stamped the background using Memento inks. I then stamped the tulips on a peice of white cardstock with Versafine Onyx black ink. then I coloured the flowers using Camel Watercolour cakes. After it dried, I fussy cut the image wrapped some cord around it and popped it up on the card using double sided foam tape. 
I finished the card by stamping the sentiment. 
The dimensions of the card are 4"x8".
