Poppies for Polly

Good morning!

A new challenge starts today at Papercraft Star ... The challenge is simply "RED"

Well, it is Valentine's Day tomorrow ... not that your project has to be Valentine related ... Mine isn't ... though it does look kind of romantic

It's my sweet SIL Pauline's (Polly) birthday today and she loves poppies ... fortunately my friend Keren gave me some lovely poppy stamps and you saw me use the smaller stamp here ... I was trying it out for this birthday card for Polly

Now you don't usually hear me say this about my own work ... But I really love this card ... 
I love that stamp and I stamped it first onto a lovely free digital ephemera paper which you can find Here and the digital postage stamp I overlaid is from The Graphic Fairy

I coloured the stem and leaves with promarkers then stamped and embossed a few more times onto DP so I could layer the petals a little - then added lots of black liquid pearls

I think Polly will really be pleased with this ...

Our team at Papercraft Star have some more lovely projects to share ... be sure to take a look 

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for visiting me ...
