Tiptoe Through the Tulips...

**Post #2 for the day. Scroll down to see my Stamp-N-Doodle post.**

Happi Monday!!  You know what that means...another Happileigh Scrappin' challenge.  Woot!  This week it was my turn to pick the challenge.  (Yay!!)  I decided that it would be fun to see everyone make their own embellishments.  Flowers, buttons...anything you can think of!  Now, not ALL of your embellishments have to be hand made, but we'd like to see at least one.

I used the images Colleen in Heart Dress and Flower Patch.  (I did alter the Flower Patch a little bit...there's actually a butterfly in the image.  However, I decided to leave those out since I would be creating my own butterflies.)  Colleen was colored with Copics, the flowers were colored with Spica markers.  I created the butterflies using ribbon and craft wire.  I created the sun by placing gems as close to each other as possible, filling the middle spaces with gold Stickles, and drawing the rays with a Spica marker.  The three flowers on the bottom I created using three different flower punches in two different colored papers.  The middle of the flowers are pastel brads.

Now that you've seen my card, head on over to the Happileigh Scrappin' challenge blog to see the creations by the rest of the Happi Sisters.  Remember, you don't have to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image to participate, but if you do your project will be entered into a second drawing for just the Happileigh Scrappin' image projects.   If you don't have any Happileigh Scrappin' images, you can find some gorgeous freebies here, or visit the store here.  (There's a gorgeous clock image free with every purchase for a limited time.)

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to be seeing your creations!  =D
