With Love

** 11/26/15 Top 2 at Julia Spiri Challenge Blog! **

Hello crafty peeps! I hope your week is off to a great start and you're getting ready for Thanksgiving next week - can't believe it's almost here! ;) I'm excited to share with you today my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #66 - Anything Goes! We're being sponsored this time by the amazing River City Rubberworks, Lacy Sunshine Stamps and Pickled Potpourri! Come play with us - we know you love Anything Goes! ;)

I won several Lacy Sunshine Stamps images in a challenge several weeks ago and decided to use the adorable Anastasia & Poppies image for this challenge because I already have the perfect papers, dies and stamps to use with her!


Isn't she just adorable?! I colored her to match the papers which is not how I normally do things. I know, I'm usually bass-ackward... I generally color my image first and then pick my papers, lol! I created a pretty poppy flower using the coordinating Poppy stamps and dies from Sheena Douglass. And of course I added my signature bow in a gorgeous shade of green!


The front and inside sentiments are also from the Poppy stamp set, stamped in SU Cherry Cobbler ink. I'm really loving how this turned out! :)

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Premium White cardstock, Marco's Black cardstock, Red Core'dinations Glitter Silk, GKD Watercolor Garden and Floral Essential 6x6 paper packs

This is lovely. Looks like a great card for someone in the Red Hat society (isn't that what its called?) That is what she reminds me of. I love all the layers and elements.

Poppies, poppies, everywhere -- paper, image and diecut !! Lovely creation, Leslie, and you apparently have more of a green thumb than I. I love poppies, and for some, they grow wild in their yard -- me, I have NO luck with them at all, so have to admire someone else's. Gorgeous card and pretty bow!
