Beate's Challenge #3

Poppies are in bloom right now, so I thought I would use this Stampendous Poppy Trio image from Eclectic Paperie for Beate's challenge.

The finished card measures 4¼ x 4¼. I used StazOn Jet Black to stamp the main image, and my Aqua Painter and re-inkers to color it. The designer paper is BasicGrey Perhaps. I used my Cuttlebug Spots & Dots folder & Big Shot for the embossed background. The sentiment is from Faux Ribbon (Papertrey Ink). I used the new Martha punch, then matted with Only Orange and trimmed with my Fiskars mini-scallop paper edgers. The image and sentiment are mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Another absolutely gorgeous card! I've been eye-ing those poppies at Archivers. I think we share a lot of the same taste. :-)
