Tulip Card for Inky Paws Challenge #9 | Newton's Nook Designs
Here's one from me - I created this spring tulip card using the Easter Scramble set. To stamp the fill on the tulips, I just flipped the stamp over and used the back side of the stamp to create a solid shape!

Flower Vase Card for Inky Paws Challenge #9 | Newton's Nook Designs
And one more - for this one, I used the vases from the Versatile Vases set and paper-pierced them to add some simple color to this card. I colored the flowers with copics. 

Now it's your turn!
