This was my take on the challenge. Hope you like it!
I started with cutting some tulips using the 2557 Layered Tulips craft die. I used copic markers to color them in. I stepped out of my comfort zone and use warm colors instead of cool ones the way I typically do. Once I was done coloring them, I adhered the petals of the tulips together.
My original thought was to layer the tulips on the fold of the card that's sticking up (the one with the Hello on it). However, it didn't look / work the way I had imagined, so I adhered the tulips to the inner fold of the card so that they look like they're peeking from behind the front flap. I topped some of the petals of the tulips with some glossy accents for shine and some others with a shimmer pen for sparkle.
I used the 2509 Hello Moonlight Script craft die to cut the sentiment multiple times with plain white card stock, and then layered them on top of each other to get a chipboard type of feel. The die cuts are very delicate for this sentiment and a bit hard to work with, but so worth it! I topped the layered Hello with another Hello that I cut out of some red glitter card stock in the Festive Glitter Pad. I used the same glitter paper to cut out a very thin strip and adhered it to the edge of the front flap.
I adhered some jewels from the Bright Jewels sticker set on the right side of the sentiment et voila! What do you think?
