Good Sunday morning all! I thought that poppies on today's card might be apropos for Remembrance Day(Veterans Day in the US) this week. I started with the background and inked the Leafy Quad folder with Cloudy Blue pigment ink and letterpressed a piece of white card. I then sprayed it with adhesive and glittered it with Diamond Sprinkles. I wrapped a piece of red frilly edged ribbon around the bottom portion and taped the ends to the back. I tied a double bow and added it with a glue dot to the left side of it. A crystal sparkler and two matching stick pins were added as accents. For the focal element, I stamped the Poppy stamp in black and coloured it with Distress markers before cutting it out with the Porto die. I stamped it again and cut out only the flowers this time, coloured and layered them up on the original. I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the centre circle die from the Porto die. I finished the card with a pierced white mat, a thin mat edged in cloudy blue ink, a thin red mat and another white mat. The finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/4" in size.
