Poppy Anniversary Card.

Good afternoon All!

Well the beautiful sunshine we`ve been enjoying has finally come to an end. I wonder if it`s because I have a day off tomorrow lol. The clouds are building but it`s still warm, hopefully summer will start proper week after next when I`ve got a week off work ;)

It was Cheryl and Darren`s wedding anniversary last sunday so ofcourse I made them a card. As Cheryl`s fave colour is red and she once told me her favourite flowers were Poppies, I`ve once again gone with a red poppy card. In fact she loves poppies so much Ruby was going to be Poppy for a while.
Anyway, enough waffle, here`s the card,

It`s a rubbish photo I`m afraid. I had a marathon card making session over the weekend and by the time I took piccy`s the light was at the wrong side of the house so all this weeks pics are dreadful. Note to self...take photographs in the morning.
Back to the card.
Red base card run through the cuttlebug with Crafts Too Damask EF.
Poppy stamp from Chocolate Baroque Fresh Florals set stamped onto strip of white card and coloured with Promarkers.Corners rounded and then raised using foam pads.
Sentiment by Rubbadubbadoo stamped onto a tiny strip of white card and placed across panel with foam pads.
Nice, simple but effective card.

I had a better nights sleep last night which is just as well as we`ve been mega busy at work today and I`ve got a wedding card to finish so I can mail it tomorrow. See you then.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
