Sweet Poppies

This card is reminisent of another I made not too long ago and the image is one of my favorite flowers from the Digi Doodle Shop.  I paired the beautiful Poppy & Bud with scallops and my favorite background, the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  My card also features pink and green cardstock so I'm entering it in the current challenge with the Digi Doodle Shop's Best.

My card base is Basic Black layered with PTI White then Regal Rose and Wild Wasabi.  I embossed both the Regal Rose and Wild Wasabi cardstock using my Swiss Dots Embossing Folder then stitched around the edges.  The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I die cut and embossed the image using Standard Circles Small Nestabilites then layered it on Basic Black die cut using Classic Scalloped Circles Small Nestabilities. 

For added dimension I pierced a hole in each scallop.  To embellish the card I added white satin ribbon with a bow at the base of the image and finished it with a black button threaded with DMC White.  I also added a metallic gold dew drop in each corner.

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