Poppies-DTGD 2013


It's been a week almost since I posted a card and I have two today. I got busy yesterday and made a card and one today.

As was my last card, it is entered into the Dare to Get Dirty challenges going on at Splitcoaststampers. You must be a fan club member to join in the challenges and there are wonderful prizes.

My card covers three of the DTGD13 challenges and will also be entered into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery. This contest runs July 1-July 31, 2013. I am using the IBS Big Wishes II set for my sentiment.

Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler, Memento Tuxedo Black

Glorious! I read and reread your post to see how you did the poppies and now I get it. It's beautiful! I just ordered two Anna Griffin EFs myself, but this wasn't one of them. Next time!

Oh, Benzi, I love the way you did this but am still trying to figure it out! Is that a rubber stamp? A digi? Love how the flowers are white and the background is inked. Fabulous butterfly!
