Birthday Poppies

If you were wondering how the StampNation LIVE event was, it was FANTASTIC!  I had such a wonderful and relaxing weekend.  It was amazing to be in a room with so many women that share my passion.  I've never experienced anything like it.  I'm already looking forward to next year :)  I'll share some of what I did while I was there later this week.

Today I have a card that I made for this weeks StampNation Sketch Challenge.

I used the MFT Pretty Poppies & Distressed Diamonds Stamp Sets and Poppies & Leaves dies.  I paired them with some of the dies included in Blueprints 1 to make a little embellishment in the upper left corner to balance out my card.

Here's the sketch that my card is based off of...


Stamps:  Pretty Poppies & Distressed Diamonds (MFT)
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White, Crumb Cake (SU!)
Accessories:  Blueprints 1, Poppies & Leaves (MFT), Button & Linen Thread

Hey Maureen! Love this sketch and the card with its unique take on it! It's given me an idea that I will share soon. Thank you for the kind words on my blog, and I'm happy to be YOUR newest follower! I've decided I need to simplify some of my cards and can think of no better place to gain inspiration!

Beautiful card Mo. Love the color scheme and the white space. I think my fav is the sweet little touch in the upper left corner.
