Poppy Card

Just a quick post - (coffee break) I need to get my homework done for tonight - the curtains!  I am going to Crafty buddy Daine's house for the next stage.

 DD bought me some crafting goodies for my birthday and this stamp was included, I have wanted this for ages. I used a beige cardstock, and stamped with black Memento and then overstamped with Hero Arts Old French Writing in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, I didn't bother to mask as I have paper pieced the flower heads, this and the Cuttlebug Script panel were then sponged  with the same DI. I stamped  the image on red with Black Versa Mark ink  and  heat embossed this before cutting out the poppies.  I used the same red for the punched panel. I know its nothing too original, but I enjoyed making it and I am looking forward to more 'plays' with this stamp set.

Some challenges for this card:
  Everybody Art - Garden
  The Stamp Man - Anything by Tim (Distress Ink)
  Anything Goes Challenge - Flowers
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes

A beautiful card Avril, just love that poppy stamp, my favourite flower. Thanks for following, I've returned the compliment. I like your circle cards with the Marianne die, hope you don't mind if I "borrow" that idea ?

Saw you card over at MIM and really like how you have the embossed text & stamped text, it creates extra dimension to this Fab card.
