Poppies For A Friend

Hello there,

Look at me….two posts in one weekend.  I'm sure it's the sunshine that's going to my head, although it's also showing me where I need to do a Spring clean lol :)

I'd like to share a card with you today that I made for one of my blogging friends recently.


All the stamps that I've used are by chocolate Baroque.  I haven't had this set very long and I chose to use both Poppy stamps from the set as I wanted to make an 8 x 8 card.  My background was made using a blending tool and Distress inks and I also used various stamps in the background to add a little interest.  The corner stamp which I've used is also from the same set and I think it fames the image really well.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

What a fabulous card Sandra and I love the black and white layers with the pretty red poppies and the additional background stamping and ink blending, and the corners frame it perfectly. x

Love anything with a poppy on and this is no exception. As always a super background, and two really lovely images.
It is the windows with me, horrified how bad they look with the sun on them, look fine on a really dull day.

You're so right, Sandra - those corners are beautiful and really frame the images well. I love your background and of course I love the colours you used. Beautiful stamps, beautifully coloured. I'm sure your friend will have loved this, especially if it's 8x8, lol!
