Tulip Basket

Not having made a card in this style for a long time, I decided to give it a whirl and enter it into a couple of challenges. I went to The Cutting CafĂ© and downloaded the files.
The back side of the card shows through in a few spots when the card is closed but the front side, when the card is open, is absent of any supporting cardstock.
The files were downloaded, the images resized and cut, colored with Copic markers and edge-sponged with green dye ink. The card was assembled with a satin bow for decoration. The die was used to cut the word once in black cardstock and once in lavender. The words were adhered using the black as a shadow.
The card is being submitted to:

1. Cut It Up #122
    (Technique: Fun Fold)

2. Crafting from the Heart #160
    (Theme: Anything Goes)

3. Dies R Us #73
