Poppies


I made this card for the LSC212 challenge on SCS yesterday, but when I began to upload it, I realized that {again} I hadn't correctly read the directions *sigh*. We were supposed to create a card with subtle colors, and have the main focus a spring flower or bulb - since it was the first day of spring. I suppose the poppy is a summertime flower, and as you can obviously see, I didn't use all colors from the subtle line either. I was happy with the way the card turned out, so I decided to post it here anyway. Any flower reminds me of spring, and all shades of green also remind me of spring as well. I used Tombow and SU! markers to color this image, and used my favorite new toy - the EK fleur de lis punch - for the border.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Saturday and a great spring weekend! It's always nice to have you drop by :)

Oh my GOSH, I just LOOOOOVE what you did with the poppies!! I think I need to put that stamp on my wish list. BEAUTIFUL card!!

{sigh} I'm a little bummed about the Nationwide results. This is the first year we didn't renew our Bristol tickets. Had we renewed I would have actually been THERE for his win. Again....{SIGH!!}

...but hey, I shouldn't really complain, right? He DID win after all. :) :) :)

Happy Race Day to ya!
