Tuesday Morning Sketches #703

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  The newest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a great one by Debbie.  

My card features items from April Simon Says card kit.  I haven't bought one of these for a really long time.  I just couldn't resist these poppies.  I love poppies!  One of my favorite movies... like in the top 10 is The Wizard of Oz.  And even though the wicked witch tried to make the poppies be bad, my heart also felt so happy seeing fields and fields of poppies.  Their color is like no other.  And their seeds - I love a lemon poppy seed muffin.  Mmmm.

The card stock I used is Phone Booth - which I think is by Lawn Fawn.  The papers came in the kit, they are by Moda Scrap and I am obsessed with these papers.  I want more!  The border I made myself using a small scallop die (Simon) and a stitched border die (honestly not sure anymore, but it may be CC Designs or MFT Stamps).  I cut a strip of black card stock 1/2 inch wide, placed the scallop border to just barely cut each long edge and then laid the stitching die between the scallops and ran it through my die cutting machine again.  I stamped the poppy and leaf, colored using Copics and then fussy cut them out.  The sentiment and poppies are from the kit.  I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and then made an easy fan tail.  This is definitely exaggerating some of the elements on the card, but it works for me.  I love how this turned out.

I hope you are inspired by my card.  If not, head on over to TMS blog because the design team did a great job and there's variety!  See you there.

Beautiful. Love the red/black combo. They just make the poppies pop off the page. (Pun intended there) I'm with you on the lemon poppy seed muffins.

Gorgeous card! I love poppies, too! Every time I see poppy paper or stamps, I think, "I need this!" :)

Beautiful card. I love the black, red and white color combo with just that one green leaf. Striking!
