Poppy Love


Ok, so I finally get my satellite internet speed back up to something decent (512kbps - hardly brilliant!, but it was throttled last week due to watching too much Big Brother online!) :D Tee Hee!
Even browsing blogs and challenges was like pulling teeth at 56kbps!..... but anyway, new month, new allowance (phew!) :)

So I made this card today in time to enter the Sugar Nellie - Papercraft Planet Challenge 16 This is one of my favourite weekly challenges, so the pressure was on to get something made.  this week, Fiona challenged us to make a card in blue.  I used the Poppy digi-stamp from FunkyKits/Sugar Nellie, and used K&Co Blue poppy and dotty backing papers, an MS punch, and die cut some flowers, leaves and the corner.  I followed sketch 17 on the Sugar Bowl challenge.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Sugar Nellie - PCP - Challenge 16 - Blue
Sir Stampalot - Bring on the bling. (Gems and stickles)
Sugar Bowl - Any sketch, any theme (I used sketch 17 and flipped it horizontally - theme blue)
Digital Tuesday - Digital stamp and Dazzle Me
Simon Says - Go Dotty (K&Co Dotty paper)
The Crafty Pad - Ribbons and Flowers

Thank you for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges. xxalisonxx

I love the way your glitter detail on the image picks out the shimmer in the ribbon. The blue works so well for the poppy image too.
Glad to know I'm going to get my Great Leveller fixes again. I have been suffering....
