Poppies for You

Hi friends!  Happy Thursday!  Today I'm popping in with a quick little card I threw together earlier this week.  I only had a little bit of time before I had to leave, so I was just playing with scraps on my desk and this is the result.


I really wanted to use some of the leftover book paper from my Mojo Monday card, so I added some to a piece of cream card stock, then sponged with Antique Linen and accented with a section of the Award Banner Trim Die in soft sky.  I used the same book paper for the middle layer of the Charming Oval Die Set and masked off part of the sentiment from Each Day to stamp just the For You in rich razzleberry.  Small shiny gold pearls accent both the sentiment panel and the banner trim.

The poppies from Poppy Birthday are stamped onto cream card stock cut with the Build a Poppy Die Set  then sponged a little with Antique Linen distress ink and accented with some Stardust Stickles in the flower centers.  I used my new favorite Chicken Wire embossing folder for the soft sky and cream panels and a fun little triangle of rich razzleberry to ground the flowers a bit.  Finished card size is 4.25" square.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I have a fun day to myself planned as the boys are headed to grandma & grandpa's for the day.  Mostly prep work for our upcoming release, but I'll enjoy the silence I've missed so much these past 19 months. {grin}
