Hello Spring

The new theme for the Cut It Up challenge is about Spring!  Create a project inspired by spring and don't forget your die cuts!!  
This Topiary Pot and Bush cut is from Cutting Cafe.  Th Bundle is called Tall Flowers Shaped Cards and includes 3 different flower shapes, pots, leaves, bow and butterfly.  It also includes a cut to make a shaped card, but I chose to make mine on a card to fit a US business size envelope. 

Papers are from Polkadoodles.  I distressed the edges of the background piece and inked around all the cuts with CTMH inks.  I used a stamp to give the topiary bushes a little more texture.  

The inside sentiment is from Tulip Shaped Card Set.  

This Vintage Topiary is off to the following challenges/pages:  

Crafteezee:  Vintage
Creative Craft Cottage:  Spring Fever
Daisy Chain:  Spring is in the Air
