Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, so when I saw this beautiful image from Papertrey Ink, it immediately went on my wish list.  I also love to watercolor, and the image fits into their Friendship Jar that I own, so two more reasons to purchase...!  The only sad part of Tulips, is that they are gone so quickly.  This is my first PTI Blog Hop participation, so I hope you all like it!  Thanks for looking!

Supplies used:  SU  Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze, and Watercolor paper, Basic Grey Sweet Threads DP, Black Stazon ink, Ribbon and Sweet Threads Brad.  Watercolored with SU ink.
