Poppy Power

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Flowers (flowers in your images).We have the fabulous Delicious Doodles and Di’s Digi Downloads as our sponsors.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the beautiful Poppy by Delicious Doodles.She’s been coloured with FlexMarkers with black pearls added to the centre of each poppy.The pretty vintage papers were a freebie with last month’s issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine as is the chipboard square.I stamped a sentiment,from Polly & Walter A6 Clear Stamp Set by Willow Designs,onto it.I was going to leave it at that then decided to make some poppy-like flowers to tie in with the image.Well,as close as I could get anyway!A length of wine coloured ribbon was tied in a double bow to embellish.I made the card base from some leather textured card cut to form a 6″ x 4″  tent card then adhered the topper so that it will fit into a DL envelope 🙂

For my card I’ve used Skating on Ice clear stamp from Willow Designs and coloured him with ProMarkers,adding a paper pieced scarf.I’ve also given him lots of icy Diamond Stickles to skate on.The papers and card are some I’ve dug out from my stash.The ribbon is a leftover scrap and I’ve tied a snowflake charm,to compliment the wintry scene,using some silver cord.
