rambling rose tattered lace die

I can't believe it's May 11 and so cold , blowing a gale here . My card can be bright and cheerful though.
I've used dies, punches and embossing !
The gorgeous in your face fuchsia card by hunky dory has been embossed using a rose 6x6 embossing folder by crafters companion . The decorative edge around my image/sentiment is a Martha Stewart punch around the page . The rose embellishment is a tattered lace die , rambling rose the free die with the latest magazine, cut and layered 3 times . T.he fancy corners are from a Sue Wilson die .
I've added liquid pearls , my new thing to add to every card lately! The image is cut from a 12x12 paper by Kaiser raft called Miss Nelly.
The pictures not very good , combination of a cheap camera and bad light , but you get the jist.

The huge tulips are actual tulips from Amsterdam , my hubby and I went last year , visited the tulip museum and brought a bag of tulip bulbs back for my Mum, they looked stunning in her garden but as she was going on holiday so asked me to cut some .Don't they look amazing , no wonder the Dutch went mad over these . The veining they found out was actually a  virus ...oh the money they spent on these paying more than for houses.

A few pictures of the garden I took the other day , hope the cold wind doesn't spoil everything.

                                      enjoy the rest of the weekend and happy crafting .janex

Such a lovely, bright card...thank you for sharing it with us at the Hobbybook Designer Challenge. So jealous of your garden, we have recently moved and ours is about a tenth the size and has nothing but lawn, I can't wait to get some flowers into it :)
