Birthday Wishes for the Paper Players and Seize the Birthday


Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using a couple of challenges.
First up is the challenge at The Paper Players, this week the challenge is "Clean and Simple Floral"


and then the Challenge this week at Seize the Birthday, which is Anything Goes with topping option of Flowers.

Most of you know that CAS is not my style but I do find myself gravitating towards this style a bit more lately. I decide I would pull out this great Memory Box die I got ages ago and have not used much and make my floral card.
I made several die cuts of the Poppy and layered them up, I like the dimension you get by layering this type of die cut. I started with just some white and then I used old olive for the stems and then real red for the flower. I sponged the flowers with some cherry cobbler ink at the base.


The base of the card is some PTI white card stock and then another layer of white that I embossed with the stripes EF. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Blooming with Kindness set. I stamped with Black stazon onto the white card stock. I added a small bow with a pearl center on the end of the sentiment flag.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Vicki

You did a great job with CAS even though you think you can't. AND I am loving this die you used. They poppies are so pretty and I love how you sponged the bottom for definition. GREAT CARD
