Tulips and Thank you

Morning everyone and the start of a new week and a new challenge at Artistic Inspirations which is "Thankful" and we are sponsored by Patties Creations and I chose the image Tulips-vase 2 printed twice to decoupage--well to be honest printed twice because I die-cut the first and didn't look right so used that one to decoupage the second lol.I coloured the image with promarkers and glossy accents on vase,cardstock from Papermill Direct,I stamped the background with a tulips clear stamp(no name) which I bought from a craft show,Tattered lace freebie dies(with TL craft mag),sizzix die frame with faux stitching round edges,ribbon and button from stash.
