Have you used a sketch before to create a card or scrapbook layout? Some sketches will have dimensions provided, like mine above, while others won't. You can peruse the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue for card designs. These won't have sizes but you can use any catalogues for inspiration. Perhaps you'll discover a new project design or even a colour combination that you can try. 
Here are all the pieces laid out on my stamping desk. And yes, I chose the same colours as I used in the sketch! It just happened that some of these colours were sitting on my desk when creating the sketch. Then when I went to make the card during Sunday's crafternoon the colours worked so well together! What do you think of this colour combo? Like it? Or would you change a few colours?
Since this card has so many layers, I snapped this photo to share how the stems and leaves were stamped. 2 of the stems are stamped using Garden Green ink and 1 using Shaded Spruce ink. The 2 leaves, one of either side were stamped, then punched out using the Tulip Builder punch. For the tulips Highland Heather and Blackberry Bliss inks were used, using purple as it's my favourite colour. What colour would you stamp the tulips? I'm looking forward to seeing the tulips pop up in my front flower bed. The variety of colours that are planted are so neat to see and can be used as inspiration as well. 
Because the leaves "hide" behind the Smoky Slate banner the bottom end was glued down using Multipurpose Liquid glue and the opposite end with a Mini Stampin' Dimensional. This creates some shadows and makes it look like a bundle of flowers. And better than a bundle of tulips, this card will last without water.
You could easily switch out the sentiment from Easter to happy birthday since the Timeless Tulips stamp set includes both. But Easter is about a month away so I might make a few more of these cards to mail out.
