Poppy Birthday

Morning all, hope your Monday is off to a good start. I'm off and running!! Have some shares coming up this week, spent some time stamping yesterday. Hope to spend more time there this week! January has brought ugly weather with very cold temps, snow and ice so time is best spent inside!!

Here is a bright and cheery card using the new Peaceful Moments Bundle which is the Poppy Moments Dies and Peaceful Moments saying set. The second bundle in the Peaceful Poppies Suite!

This is my first attempt with this die set, and I don't use many like this, at least not often. This came out OK, but needs contrast. Need to play with different colors and see what works together! Primary color here is Poppy Parade. As I've said many times, red is NOT my thing but I do like Poppy Parade! Card base is Poppy. Background is the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I'm a little late on getting to using that! I put Whisper White behind it so the open areas pop. Flower is cut from Poppy Parade in two layers with a Basic Black center. Broke out my fine tip glue pen, maybe for the first time too :) Happy Birthday is from Peaceful Moments and the tag shape it is stamped on is from the Painted Labels die set. Painted Poppy Textured Weave Ribbon is tied around the acetate.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a few chores to work on, and some tax related bookwork to do, but hoping to at least end the day in the stamp room. Stay tuned on Facebook this week!! Follow me there if you aren't! Shopping links and product details below.
