OWH BLOG HOP sketch #35


This is based on sketch OWH #35  It is the Poppies stamp (clear set by Penny Black).
I used Copic Markers to color.  Border punch is from Martha Stewart (around the page single loop punch).

How perfect are poppies for Memorial Day Weekend? Wish I'd thought of it because I have that stamp. It's a beautiful card, your coloring is wonderful, and I really like that by not putting the flowers on a background piece of cardstock you made them stand out even more! I also don't use ribbon all that much because I tend to lean toward CAS, but you have me reconsidering. Thanks for sharing your card that's going in my inspiration file!

Your card is absolutely beautiful. Your image is wonderfully colored, and you picked the perfect orange dotted background and ribbon to tie it all together. Your use of the white, green and blue to temper the orange's intensity is absolute perfection. Thank you for sharing this gem and for your support or our heroes and OWH.
