Poppy Heart

Hi Bloggers,

I was in a local craft shop the other day (The Papeterie), I just wanted to get some coloured card, but I saw this lovely Poppy Heart stamp by Indigo Blue.  Inspired by Sharon from Crafty Cardmakers fabulous Remembrance Day card, I just had to have it.


Showing the dimension


Indigo Blu Poppy Heart stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, then coloured with Promarkers (Poppy, Berry Red, Red, Holly, Lush Green & Sky Blue). I added a touch of sparkle to the poppy centres with Sakura Black Sparkle pen.  Popped up onto Stampin Up Real Red card (hope this qualifies as 'dimension'). The label dies are also Stampin Up. The card base is 6x6".



I'd like to enter into three challenges:

Cas-ual Fridays CFC 74 - Put your {Heart} into it
Let's Create & Craft #56 - Dimension
I Love Promarkers #139 - Anything Goes 


I'm going to send this card to a friend I haven't seen in ages. We met whilst I was researching my family tree, she is a volunteer at the local Family History Society and has a passion for WWI. To date I think she has collated the details of around 11,000 casualties from the North East of Scotland.  I'm sure she'll appreciate it, just as I appreciate all of you popping in to spend a few moments with me.

Thanks again, take care

Fab stamp and beautifully coloured Suze. Poppies are my favourite garden flower and there are so may colours that I can see that this will be a most useful purchase. Am going to check out LC&C to see if my card qualifies.
