PTI Tulip Birthday Card

Hi!  I had about 30 minutes today to squeeze in a card while dinner baked in the oven, so I decided to play along with a couple of the Papertrey Release Challenges.  I chose Day 5's Challenge, which was to improve a card you weren't quite satisfied with, and since I used one of my favorite PTI floral sets, Tulip Time, I'm also linking this up to Day 3's Challenge.  Yes, I know you are supposed to use your all time favorite floral set, but any one who knows me knows I can't narrow things down to just one favorite.

To be honest, I think this might be the card that never ends because after taking a second look at it, there are already a couple things I can see that I'd do differently.  Oh, well.  It might be fun to see where this journey of the perfect berry sorbet tulip card takes me.  And actually a few of the things I would have done a little different were the result of a little two-year-old helper I had, so all in all I think this "mom and me" card turned out pretty well.
I'm also linking this up to the Simon Says: For a Special Lady Challenge.  The original card was made for a special teammate of mine, and this one is, too. :) Hope that your week has started off to a good one.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
