I water coloured the background of the card, the tulip stamp is from Chloe Stamps which I embossed with Wow! gold embossing powder, then painted with Mica powders. I have a crown to represent the Royal family, the national flag, the stamp is a commemorative stamp of their famous painter Van Gough. Thanks to everyone who visits and makes comments. I am now off to load this, add it to my extra page, and then later this evening I will be able to relax and visit everyone (I hope).

Week 11 - Kingdom of the Netherlands Postcard Challenge
I'm late this week, I normally manage to add my postcard on a Friday but life has taken over from the fun time. I know it isn't a problem, we have till next Friday really but I hate being late, one reason being, I resist the temptation to look at others entries for the week, until mine is finished and uploaded, I would otherwise maybe not enter mine, for there are so many talented artists who are taking part in Darcy's 52 week, this being Week 11 of the Postcard Challenge. The Netherlands bring back many happy memories for me. My husband and I and two friends spent a wonderful weekend in Amsterdam and a seaside resort, touring various places en route. We visited a diamond merchant's and my darling husband bought for our Pearl Anniversary, a pearl and 2 diamond, platinum ring, which incidentally cost a lot more than the whole holiday put together and then some. I tried on clogs, tasted cheeses, visited tulip fields, windmills, dykes, a wonderful time spent with good company.
