Spring Tulips

Yesterday we drove through Michigan State University's campus and the tulips, daffodils and magnolia trees were putting on a spring show.  Too bad I did not have my camera.  But I do have a few tulips blooming in the craft room that I do have pictures of:
I made this set using a tutorial shared with us by Jessica Luther on Ustamp.   Pink flowers are my favorite so I used Melon Mambo for the tulips and the Beyond the Garden DSP.
This was my first time using the pop-up cake die.  It is quite quick to make once you get the hang of it.  Karen Burniston the designer of the die has a great video with some extra tips for putting it together.
The flowerpot goes inside the box.   I thought the little pom pom trim was so cute around the sections.
I like how the flower sticks over the edge of the card front.
