FMS381 & DD#48 Poppies

This is such a classic sketch from Cindy at Freshly Made Sketches this week, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to work in a classic fashion!! I had thought about doing a spotlight card, but today I decided to cut a window using one of the Floral Frame Framelits.

Next it was deciding on the colour scheme, and I went with the Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie at Dynamic Duos.

I used the lovely big stamp Pleasant Poppies with Black Stazon and coloured with a blender pen and Stampin' write markers in Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake for stems. A textured strip of Bashful Blue was adhered  for the contrast strip, and three little brads in Pumpkin Pie hold the greeting, from Sweet Essentials.

 Back to school for me tomorrow morning, hope I remember to get up!

  4. So very pretty! That flower window with the poppies is pure genius. Thanks for playing with the Dynamic Duos.

  5. Lovely card! Great idea to cut the flower apeture and have the poppies behind! Thanks for playing along with Dynamic Duos this week!

  6. I just love how you framed the pretty image through that 3-D window. Thank you so much for joining us this week at Dynamic Duos! :)
