So Thankful

 Hi bloggers!  Poppies, I just love poppies, don't you?  When I saw this set (Labels 29 Poppies)from JustRite, I knew I wanted to use them straight away.  It was first set in the bunch that I opened.  I started by stamping the Floral Flourish stamp on the top of the white background card.  I used a clear perfect medium pad and I heat embossed it with white powder for a tonal effect.  I stamped my sentiment (from the Good Friends Labels 29 set by Justrite stamps)in the lower corner in black archival ink.  I also added a bit of a watermark with a swirl stamp in the opposite corner.  I used some lipstick red seam binding and tied a piece between the two sections and added a messy bow, back Dazzler and stick pins.  I covered a piece of white card with some sticky adhesive sheet and cut the Ornate Square die.  Once cut, I peeled the backing paper and covered it with Mica flakes (luna silver)  for texture.  I stamped the poppies in black and coloured them with Distress markers and used a white pencil for highlights.  I used the Vintage Label Two die and cut the poppies.  I simply cut the top half of the poppies for my focal element.  I used a soft blue pencil to add highlights to the background.  I mounted the poppies in the centre of the ornate square and pierced the edge of my double mat to complete the card.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
Now for the winner of the card drawing for Saturday's giveaway card.   Thank you for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate all of them.    The name drawn was JulieMCrane!!!  Congratulations!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com  to claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

This card is beautiful. Poppies always remind me of happy times spent in Normandy where the fields are filled with them waving in the breeze; so beautiful.

I especially love the way you have coloured them they are gorgeous and sumptuous a really lovely card.

A Happy Easter Monday to you Sue.
Well, you've done it again - the poppies certainly appeal but the card design makes sure that this is a winner. And red and white are a winner with me anytime.
