Poppies ...

No useful words of wisdom today, just a card.

This card looks so much better in real life - the red is far redder than this photograph suggests!

I used:
STAMPlorations Blooming Buds
CUTplorations Double stitched rectangle die
Disress Inks - Festive Berries, Crushed Olive and Antique Linen
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Washi tape - origin long since forgotten!!

I'm entering the following challenges:

Djkardkreations NBUS challenge - I've been looking forward to Darnell's latest challenge and am delighted to join in.  If you don't know Darnell it really is worth popping along and visiting her blog you really will not be disappointed - as well as a wonderful card maker her blog post are eloquent and fun.  The challenge is to use stuff you haven't used before - in my case the stamp set and the washi tape have only previously been admired!

STAMPlorations Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge



  1. Great coloring on your flowers, Elaine! I love the black sediment panel and the way the border of Washi balances the design! Thank you so much for your kind words and for joining in my NBUS Challenge #7!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Love the painting of your flowers. A fab card. Cara x

  3. So elegant - I love the black stripe with the red.
