Celebrate today

I made this beautiful card last week, so I thought I would share that with you today.

I would have to say besides Stamping Bella, the other stamp companies I love are Flourishes and JustRite.

Today's card I'm show casing a stamp used from JustRite called Poppies. For all you locals, this stamp set can be purchased at Paper Pickle.

I stamped the image on Papertrey white c/s, then coloured with copics. I used a s/binder labels twenty-eight to cut the poppies out, and then sponged some distress brushed corduroy around the edges to make it pop a bit.

Designer paper is Basic Grey - Serendipity.  This paper choice couldn't be more perfect for the poppies! Cardstock used was kraft and aqua mist (papertrey).

The tag was stamped with a sentiment from Papertrey Ink set called Mixed Messages, that was cut out using  a Flourishes die called - Classic Tags. 

Finished off with some beautiful cream chiffon ribbon, which has a been of sparkle sheen to it, as well as some pearls around the poppies.  I used a black spica pen for the centers of the poppies. 

I'm making this card for Mother's Day, to go in my sale basket.

Well, that's it for me, enjoy today, see you again real soon.

Love it! I keep telling myself that I do not need any more stamps or dies but I sure like that poppy stamp!...and the dies. Good job the Paper Pickle is closed today and I'm not feeling well or I might have given in on impulse. I do believe the impulse may come back on Wednesday though!!!!

This is a beautiful image, and your coloring takes it right up to the next level! The colors of your poppies are so perfectly coordinated with the paper, and I love how you placed the pearls around the image. Lovely shading, cute little tag, and love the sheen on the ribbon! An altogether gorgeous card, Pauline!
