Tulips are my favorite flower.  The shape, the variety of colors, especially pink.  Holland makes me think of fields of tulips.  With tulips in mind I inked up the stamp Anika from Holland from Your Next Stamp (which is currently on sale for only $3). 

She is holding tulips - who can resist that?  I created the grass filled tulips with the side of my copic brush marker - warning I may just be using that again and again!  I also created the tulip by rolling leave shaped petals around a pencil and then layering all of them together.
How about those wooden shoes she has on?!
The colors were inspired by a pair of wooden shoes a friend from Holland gave one of my children when they were born.  These still adorn a shelf in my house.

Luckily I received a surprise package in the mail filled with goodies including this wonderful Basic Grey PP which is full of yellows and reds.  Thank you Melyssa!!!

This one is for the Ribbon Carousel sketch challenge, which just happens to be sponsored by YNS.
