Beautiful Blossoms Tulips

It's Feb. 15 and time for the Beautiful Blossoms Challenge!
How gorgeous is this Inspiration Board? I was thinking Mother's Day card when I saw the lovely soft colors.
This is such a great start for inspiration...I wanted to watercolor tulips and create a pink background for I am so looking forward to Spring and flowers!
I started with Penny Black's Tulip Dies and cut several out of Ranger Ink Tim Holtz's Distress Watercolor Paper on the rough side. They were colored with Ranger Ink's Distress Ink Re-inkers: Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Mustard Seed.
The frame was created with Penny Black's Semi Circle Stackers and Tim Holtz Distress White Heavystock. I used the center piece of the frame to create the background with A Colorful Life Design's Pinwheel Scroll Stencil with Ranger Ink's Distress Ink Picked Raspberry.
The center design is from Penny Black's Pocket & Banners Die Set again cut from Ranger Ink Tim Holtz's Distress Watercolor Paper. This die pocket has a slit that is cut so that I could add the flowers almost like a pot. I did use the same colors of Distress Re-inkers as the tulips but with more splatter. 
The sentiment was in my stash and it is a Paper Rose Mother's Day Quotes set. Seems to be retired but such good sentiments.
Thank you for joining us at the Beautiful Blossoms 2nd Challenge...we'd love to see your work.
