Do you like Poppies?

I do. I think they're among my favourite flowers. I know that Brenda loves Poppies too so I made this card to celebrate her blogaversary. Hope she likes it!

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black Poppies.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Embossing folders :- Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Stampin' Up! Honeycomb.
Twine :- Ribbon Girl.
Pearls :- Hobby House.

I would have added black Stickles to the centre of the Poppies but I've lost them! I've searched everywhere but they've vanished. So I coloured the centres with black Promarker, then added some Glamour Dust and then more black Promarker. I wonder if the reason I've lost my black Stickles is because my table is a bit of a tip or if I've accidentally dropped them in my rubbish bag which has been binned! Suppose I'd best just buy a new bottle.

I used the lovely sketch from Penny Black so I'm entering their challenge. I'm also entering the challenge at Crafty Creations which is flowers or fairies.

Oops I've just noticed the time! I think I'd best go and do my ironing now.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up with you all tomorrow.

  2. I LOVE this card. I really like poppies, and combined with one of my other favourite things, embossing folders, this is very much my sort of card.
    My ipad objects to me leaving comments on your blog Kat, and I think it may have sent one that I was in the middle of editing...just delete it if it shows up at your end!

  3. Gorgeous CAS card,Kat love Poppies too and like that hexagon embossing. That's something I don't have lol! Carolxx

  4. Morning Kat,

    I was so please to see your entry when I got back from Paris last night.

    As you might guess I love your card, the PB poppies look stunning against the white embossed background and the touches of red in the twine and gems really give for such an elegant feel.

    I keep seeing that honeycomb embossing flower pop up and it's becoming a real 'need' item' and looked good against the Swiss dots as well.

    Thanks so much for joining in my blog celebration and for your friendship.
