Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Poppy Love

It's challenge time over at Sweet Pea Stampers and this time we have a sketch for you to follow designed by the awesome Vanessa. The prize is three sheets of digi decoupage from our fabulous sponsor Amy at The Crafty Purple Frog. I'd like to remind you that we currently have a DT call out, so if you fancy joining us, pop over to the blog to check out the details. Oh and don't forget to enter my blog candy draw, the post for it is at the top of the page.

Right onto my card, this is my take on the sketch. I've basically followed it with one or two slight changes. For more inspiration, pop over to the challenge blog to see what the other girls have done, there's some fantastic cards.

I've used Ching-Chou Kuik's Poppy Love from Sweet Pea Stamps. The image has been coloured with my trusty Promarkers and then blinged up a bit with Stickles, Viva Pearl Pen and a Sakura Gel Pen. I've then embossed some Co-dinations Black Magic Cardstock using a Sizzix embossing folder and then sanded it over to reveal the core colour.

The flower has been made using my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix Die I've spritzed it with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and finished it off with a fancy button. The giant heart pin is from The Ribbon Girl.

Thanks for visiting today and I'll look forward to stopping by to see your creations.

Have a fab weekend.
