My Favourite Poppy Image.

Did you see Brenda's little challenge to make a poppy related card. It could be either a poppy image or use the lovely colour of poppies.

Well anyone who knows me knows that I love poppies so I couldn't resist entering. I know they're an unconventional colour but it is my favourite colour. And of course my favourite poppy stamp. I made this card for my friend who's having a birthday next week. I know she loves this image too and it's safe to show you this card as she doesn't blog.

I used :-
Image :- Hero Arts.
Sentiment :- LOTV.
DP :- Paper Adventures (I think!)
Butterflies :- Martha Stewart.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Coloured pearls & gems :- Basic Grey.
Embossing :- M-Bossabilities from Spellbinders.
Viva pearl pen on embossing.
Glamour Dust, ribbon and Sakura glitter gel pen (on butterflies).

Wonderful picture isn't it - not! I should have taken it from a different angle instead of showing the sticky pads under the sentiment lol!

I'm also entering the following challenges :-
Basic Grey :- Things with wings.
Sir Stampalot :- What's your crafty passion? Hero Arts stamps, Glamour Dust, dry embossing, Promarkers and bling.

Hopefully this will appear on Sunday morning if I get my scheduling right! I've even got another card ready to post. I started to make a card for the Less is More challenge for last week which was sewing. The other day I coloured my image, laid out all the bits and pieces I needed but didn't put it together. It was only later I realised that what I was making wasn't a CAS card. You'll see what I mean when I show you the card tomorrow.

Enjoy what's left of the weekend.

    Poppies, an easel card, butterflies and pearls what more could a girl ask for.

    It's become very clear to me this last week that this hero arts stamp is a favourite with so many of us and no wonder other is so versatile.

    You don't know how much it has thrilled me me seeing so many of my blogging friends join in this little fun challenge. My thanks to you taking the time to make a lovely card to link up to my challenge, also sharing your crafty passion with us at Stampalot challenge this month.
