Pretty Pink Poppy


I was so busy making Halloween cards in October that I missed out on making a pink card for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Although October is now over I still wanted to take a few moments to create a special card for the occasion, especially since I'll be getting my first mammogram this month!  Today's card was also created with this week's Stamps R Us challenge in mind, using buttons and bows!

My card base is Night Of Navy layered with a slightly smaller piece of PTI White then DCWV pink cardstock.  The shadow layer is a 1 1/4 strip of Basic Grey Ferris Wheel patterned paper layered on to a slightly larger piece of Night Of Navy cardstock.  The poppy image is a beautiful digital stamp from Daisy Doodles that I printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. 

I paper pierced around the edges of the image then layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Night Of Navy before attaching to the card base with mounting tape.  To embellish the card I made a pretty bow using 3/8" White Grosgrain Ribbon and finished it off with a transparent pink button threaded with DMC White.  I also added two pearl dew drops in the upper right corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Very pretty Karen. Those colors are so sweet. I really like the simplicity of your cards meaning not overly embellished. It lets you enjoy the artwork more.
