Simple and pretty, and so easy!
I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, and gave it a wash of new Highland Heather ink, using an AquaPainter. Once that was dry (I used my heat tool to help it along) I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black.
I stamped the tulip outline, in Tuxedo Black, and filled it in with the solid tulip, stamping it in Highland Heather. The stamps are photopolymer, and are very easy to line up for the perfect image. The leaves are colored with Pear Pizzazz; the vase was stamped with Gorgeous Grape.
I haven't seen or spoken to the cousin in over 40 years but I remember her from when I was a little girl. I hope she'll remember who I am, and will like her card!
