This is my second week off and I am treasuring every moment of it.  I did a lot of spring cleaning - OMG!  Everything is so dusty!

Have you heard about the latest challenge over at ABNH - all about Tone on Tone!  It was kind of a challenge to me as I took awhile to figure to make a reasonable card.

One thing I like about ABNH is that they encourage using old HA stamps and I decided to pull out HA Starburst Lace.  My tone on tone stamping is simply by using black ink on the black background and a contrast HA unicorn ink.  The sentiment is heat embossed in white on a torn vellum.

I would like to pop this card into the following challenge Stamping SensationsHouse of CardsCASology and CAS-ual Fridays.

Here are some more of the tulips photos which I promised a few days ago.  Have you seen this colour before - it is dark purple.

I love this shocking pink...

 DH behind the scene!

Hope you have enjoyed the rest of the tulips and I am going back to creating cards again....WOOHOO!

I always think tone on tone cards looks so smart Lai-Yoke and the vellum strip sentiment works very nicely, doing that sometime soon is on my to do list. It's also nice to revisit old stamps. A great card fort our challenge, many thanks for joining us at Stamping Sensations challenge.

And thank you for sharing more Tulip photos, I really enjoy seeing them.
