Color Throwdown #40

I had purchased a cute stamp by Rachel Ann Miller from a while back and thought I should finally use it. I love the big flower-umbrella!

Tulip Festival and a Challenge

The guys and I had a fun-filled weekend. I worked a bit of overtime on Saturday, but we headed to La Conner, WA, in the afternoon to visit my mother-in-law. The Tulip Festival happens every Spring in the La Conner area, and the Skagit Valley fields are filled with vibrant tulips in yellow, red, orange, purple...almost every color. Some are even two-toned. Just gorgeous! I went last year and emailed the pictures to friends and family - several of them thought I went to Holland!

I haven't participated in a challenge in a while and felt a bit guilty about it. I saw that K Werner was holding her 50th Color Inspiration Challenge ( and thought I should participate in such a milestone. Below is my take on this challenge. I was excited because I received my Stampin' Up! Big Shot last week, but haven't had a chance to use it until tonight. Woo-Hoo!
Below is what I ended up with after tinkering around with some scraps. I love ribbon!!!
