Pink tulips from a perfume carton

Hello sweet people,
A warm welcome (tad late) to my newest follower - thanks so much for following my little blog.
Many thanks for all the kind words about me meeting my target - we crafters thrive on encouragement, don't we?
Now to my card -  the pink tulips have been die cut (Sizzix) using a perfume carton. I have mounted most of them on foam tape. The lace is my new acquisition from a teeny tiny haberdashery close by.




The card above is pretty much like the one above but I have sponged the tulips with milled lavender and see how it makes take on a prettier hue. The ribbon on this card is also recycled - it was used to pack the perfume. 
Which one do you like?

I am going to submit these cards for:

Off to do some commenting now...

Love,
Monica
