get well soon...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card I made for a couple of challenges, ColourQ and Freshly Made Sketches.  I used a couple of older My Favorite Things stamp sets, along with a new one and dies that match the new set and two of the old sets.   The old sets I used are Sweet Roses and Pretty Poppies.  The new set is Delicate Pretty Poppies.   I have MFT poppy dies that match Pretty Poppies and Delicate Pretty Poppies and the dies that match Sweet Roses.  I also used the Jumbo Fishtail Flag Stax dies.   I kept the navy color in the background by using it in small qualities and focusing more on the light blue, bright green and the sand color.   I fiddled around with some of the flowers in the Pretty Poppies set before deciding to use to one flower three times.  I didn't like the way the leaves that are in the Pretty Poppies set looked with the flowers so I grabbed my Sweet Roses set and used the smaller leaf cluster from that set.  The sentiment is from the new Delicate Pretty Poppies.    I added some partial embossing using my favorite embossing folder (SU!'s Decorative Dots), die cut the jumbo banner and then layered everything up on the card base.   Finished things off by adding Crystal Stickles to the center of each of the flowers.   Also adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  die cuts.



 
Thanks for stopping by today...
