I love tulips, I love soft colors, and I love card sketches that are a bit different. All that adds up to this fun card that I can’t wait to send to my bestie! She’s going to love it!

The special touches on this card include the Hive 3D Embossing Folder (if you don’t have a Cut & Emboss Machine, just leave the mat unembossed), the colors, and those very fun Pebble Embellishments!

For the Color Combination, I went with Smoky Slate, Blushing Bride, and Pear Pizzazz. Three soft colors that are perfect for a rainy day – without being dreary!
