Can You Get Yellow Poppies?

Oh well.... I'm not sure but my cute little hedgie has them!!!!

This card covers three challenges; I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious Challenge 2 and as well as the sketch you had to make a button, the Cupcake Challenge 29 was to use a picture for inspiration and I used the colours and the flowers, and finally, Charisma Cardz Challenge 9 was to make a pretty card.

The penny black image is coloured with distress inks and it has been mounted on yellow card and a scalloped circle cut with my nesties. The papers are from my stash and I inked the edges of all the elements with spiced marmalade distress ink.

To make my button I cut a circle with my smallest nestie and I inked around the edges. I found a yellow die cut flower among a random box of die cut shapes and it fit exactly inside the circle.... how was that for a stroke of luck!!! I then punched two small holes, threaded a ribbon through them and tied it in a knot to finish it off. My other button is from PM and I threaded some ribbon through it to jazz it up a little! The sentiment is computer generated using the font tempus sans itc and a used a corner rounder to shape the end.

Supplies:
Card/Paper: White and yellow card, paper from stash
Stamp: Penny black - poppy fields
Colouring: Distress inks - peeled paint, vintage photo, walnut stain, broken china, spiced marmalade, tattered rose and worn lipstick.
Embellishments: PM button, ribbon, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, water brush, sponge, corner rounder punch, small hole punch
Thanks for looking x

  3. I think it was clever how you made the poppies into buttercups. I also like the geometric shapes in this card.
