Poppy by Daisy's Digi Doodles


Hi everyone!  Welcome back for another Digi Doodle Shop's Best weekly challenge.  This week the challenge is FLOWERS and the gals on the design team are mixing things up a bit by creating cards using our favorite floral digital image from this week's sponsor, Daisy's Digi Doodles!  How fun is that!!!  I couldn't resist creating a card with this beautiful Poppy image and have to admit I have more images colored waiting to share with all of you!  Hope you dig out your favorite floral image and play along for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate from Daisy's Digi Doodles.

My card base is Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White then Real Red Dotted Patterned Paper followed by a diagonally cut strip of Certainly Celery.  The image measures 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 and was colored in using copic markers.  I paper pierced around the edges then layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock.  I wrapped organdy ribbon around the image and tied a bow in front before attaching to the card base using mounting tape.

Hope you have a great day!
