Tulip Toles

I've been quite sick lately and didn't get as much art done this month as I was hoping to.  In between lying around gathering my strength, I worked on a bunch of cards a bit at a time.  So, here's a couple I finished and scanned and I'll post the rest as I put finishing touches to them and get them scanned.  These two are tole cards on black backgrounds and painted with acrylics.
Toles are old fashioned floral designs started in the Scandanavian countries and can be seen on many pennsylvania dutch artwork.
