Sunday Postcard Art - Botanica

This is my postcard for Sunday Postcard Art where this week's theme is Botanica. I used a favorite tulip stamp from Oxford Impressions' Fairest Flower plate, and combined it with a couple of other stamps from the same plate and a cool border I find myself using a lot from Technique Tuesday. When flipping through an old dictionary, I found a page with the word "tulip" in the upper corner - how perfect a fit for my idea - just love it when that happens! I also have to thank Jamie at Arteology for the ledger paper I purchased through her Etsy shop - such gorgeous writing! - I think the pages were from 1834.
