Beautiful tulips

One last Easter card for this year to remind you of the current Fadengrafik Challenge "Easter bunny on the way". Well, bunny is long gone, but he seems to have left a basket full of eggs and beautiful tulips.
For the card, I decided not to mix too many colours. Instead, I kept the focus on the stitched centerpiece and made the rest in soft beige shades. To match the sketch at cheerfulsketches, I added a ribbon with lace and three flowers which I made from bought petals and pearls.
That's about it for today, and there's still plenty of time for you to play along at the Fadengrafik challenge. Link up anything Easter related, just make sure it's a pickpoint/embroidery project.
However, in case you don't have any Easter card leftovers or haven't started making next years' cards, you may make it an "ATG" challenge and enter any card you want ;) 

Since my bunny only brought me chocolate eggs, I had to get the flowers myself.
I decided to take a bouquet of those red tulips at the flower market, and got two additional bouquets for free! A red one of fresh flowers, and one in yellow and pink that was meant to be thrown away as it wasn't all too fresh anymore. Still, all of them were in full bloom for about a week, making sure the smell of spring spread all over my apartment.
