Black, White and Red


I'm here again today with another quick blog post to join in with this week's challenge over at Allsorts and their challenge this week is a sketch,  Here's the card that I've made:

I stamped and coloured the Poppies which are by 'Inkylicious'. I was going to add a link directly to the Poppies but it looks like they're no longer available,  The sentiment from 'Sweet Dixie' stamps.

I cut out the required shapes and then mounted them onto my card, along with the Poppies which I fussy cut out.  As it all looked quite bare, I embossed the oval to add some interest. The leaves were made using a 'Tattered Lace' die and then the card was finished using a black bow and ribbon.

As I've used lot's of snippets here, I'll pop over to show this card to Miss Di over at  Pixie's Snippet's Playground, no doubt there'll be lots of mischief going on there! It's week 277 and 278 of the challenge.

I'm also entering this card into the following card challenges:
