Hello Flower

It's Wednesday and you know what that means,time for a new challenge at Scrapbook Sisters and who can resist entering this one? it's Birthday Greetings!  Here's my DT card using my gorgeous new  Woodware poppy stamp

Ok,I know that poppy's look best red but my R27 Copic ran out mid way and left me with only a partially blended bloom,try as I might I just couldn't rescue it so that's why there's only part of the red poppy showing.

I used glossy accents on the stamens which looks fab in real life (in my opinion) The leaves from the poppy I stamped onto design paper using Momento Bamboo and added around the bloom on top of the double layer of ribbon. I don't know what's happening lately but I can't stop myself layering up the ribbons.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Stamps R Us,through the garden gate,
Birthday Sundaes,Anything goes Birthday,
Thanks for stopping by,

I think this is gorgeous Julie! Love the polka dot paper and the layered ribbon, great idea (gonna steal it by the way!) and I had orange poppies in my last garden so you are good to go. Oh, love the cut edge too, adds a beautiful touch.

Hi Julie, this is gorgeous, love the DP and I agree with you that the GA on the stamens looks good, it really lifts it. Wonderful! Pami x

Even with a drained marker this is just lovely. Those stamens look so real and dimensional that you'd think you could touch them and have flower poweder on your fingertips! This is so very pretty.
