Hello friends... back with a second post for today. Hadn't planned on it, but wanted to get this card posted for the current Dynamic Duos challenge before I ran out of time. Never thought I would say this, but I really like light blue and orange together!
About this time of the year the California poppies start to bloom in my area. I love the vibrant golden-orange color of the blooms. I saw a couple that had bloomed on my morning walk and that means in the next week or so a hillside close to my house will be covered with them. So when I saw the Dynamic Duos combo I thought of only one thing... poppies!! I got out my MFT/LJD Pretty Poppies set (and matching dies) and got to work. The layout for the card is based on the current Retro Sketch. You don't have to ask me twice to put a banner on my card, hee hee! I die cut the flower heads and then stamped them using SU!'s Pumpkin Pie ink. The Spring Rain cardstock piece was cut to fit the card base and then stamped with the script border image from the Pretty Poppies set using Memento Summer Sky ink. I die cut the MFT Jumbo Fishtail Flag and adhered the poppies to the top using foam dimensionals. The sentiment, also from Pretty Poppies, was added using Tuxedo Black ink. To finish off the card I added Black Diamond Stickles to the center of the poppies.
Thanks for stopping by....
