Good Friends and Umbrellas

Joan's Gardens has an interesting challenge this week.  They're asking us to create a card using items from the letters 'TULIPS'. 

T_  texture, trellis, transparency: I wanted some polka dot paper but didn't have any and the only white paint I had was some fabric puffy paint.  Worked great!  I also used a MS trellis punch.  The sentiment is printed on a transparency.
U_  umbrella
L_  layers, is that stretching it?  I was going to add lace and forgot.
I_   items from Joan's Gardens, image; Spellbinders scalloped circle die; image is from Digi Desserts Fridaze
P_  paper, Prismacolor pencils, polka dots
S_  stripes, sentiment, scalloped circle, stickles; the stripes were created with markers. Isn't that a wonderful sentiment? Love it!  'A Good Friend is an umbrella for the soul'.

Whew!  I hope I got everything covered!

Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed day!
