Poppy Sunshine

Hello Everyone!

A quick note before my card to let you know that next week I’ll be putting things up on my blog for SALE.  I have about 75 stamp sets from numerous companies, and some Copics that I’ll be listing right stay tuned for that next week!  :)

Now for the card!  I’ve had this image from A Day for Daisies Digital stamps forever and have been longing to get some time to colour it up.  I love their images - they are very artsy and very it leaves a lot of space for creativity in colouring.  This one is called Vintage Poppy Cluster.  Her artwork is very beautiful and there is a lot to choose from so be sure to check them out if you haven’t already.

I’m playing along with 2 challenges - the ADFD Challenge to use green and I thought I’d jump in on the Card Concept Challenge - Floral Themed for the first time  They ask you to pick your style of card based on several categories as you’re designing.  I would probably have to peg myself as Classy and Elegant or Clean and Layered, I fall in both of those categories with most of my designs.

I gave these poppies lots of rich orange colour and a very dappled pointillism green background for fun.  I absolutely love lime green.  It’s my favourite shade of green and I love to colour with it and wear it too :)  
I’ve used a Spellbinders Border, frame, some satin finish ribbon and these pretty orange gems to accent as well as a sentiment from Flourishes - Inside and Out Hello set.  

Thanks for dropping by everyone and I’ll catch you next week for my SALE!  Hope you can check it out!

About the sale, I may like to ask you through private message about certain stamp sets I couldn't get through Flourishes' sale if that is possible.
