Sunrise Poppy

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today, I am the third designer to post a new card from the Spring 2015 Collection.  This new collection has dozens of dies, stamps and stencils----time to go shopping!  Poppies are the state flower here in California so this is my flower homage featuring the gorgeous Sunrise Poppy.

 I paired graphite and sky blue papers together with mango and meadow green papers for the flower---I love this color combination.  The poppy was die cut in green and mango, both were distress inked to add color variation and shading.  The flower pieces were easily pieced into their respective places once the green outline was adhered to the card.

For a fun and interesting element I die cut the Distressed Baptisia Collage into the upper left corner of the grey panel---the new collage dies are my absolute favorites in this collection and love how the layered paper shows through the cut openings.  

I added some randomly placed sequins for a little pizzaz... now for the inside...

Keeping it sweet and simple, I stamped the new sentiment Happiness onto a Stitched Rectangle Layer, inked the butterfly with Copic markers and added more sequins.

Oh my, that is a really gorgeous card! I love that die! There are so many fantastic new dies coming out this release. Thanks for the chance to win!

Such a lovely card! All the dies work so well together.

Well, as a native Californian I have always loved the California Poppy so this card caught my eye! So pretty and I love that die!

I love to see the poppies in bloom, and this die is fantastic. Also like the sentiment. I would probably add a butterfly on one of the flowers. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely card, Jenny. I agree with you. The distressed corners are one of my favourites, too :)
