Technique Tuesday Bonus!!! - Punched Tulip....

Here's your bonus Technique Tuesday!  Here's how to make a spring tulip using the Build A Blossom, Owl & Bird punches.
 You will need the three punches, some ink, a post it note and a sponge.  Using the Build a Blossom punch, punch two large leaves from Old Olive cardstock and one large leaf from Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Using the Owl Punch, punch one owl out of Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Finally, punch the twig from the Bird Punch out of Old Olive cardstock.
 Cut the feet off the Owl and sponge the edges of the cardstock.
 Sponge the edges of the Daffodil Delight large leaf and attach it to the front of the owl piece.  Trim off the little tip of the leaf.
 Your tulip will look like this.

 Attach your twig to the back of the tulip as shown.
 Cut a strip off your post it note and attach it to the side of one of the Old Olive leaves as shown.
 Insert back into the large leaf area of the Build a Blossom punch but place it so you get the curve on the leaf as shown.  Repeat this with the other leaf and attach to the stem.
Here's my card which incorporates the Framed Tulip embossing folder and the punched tulip.  Hope you enjoyed your bonus today!
