AH 426 - Birthday Poppies

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 426!

The sketch is shown in horizontal orientation - I changed it to vertical and kept the elements in  approximately the same places.

The beautiful poppy paper drove my idea for my card. I used the front and back of that paper and added some embossed cardstock (red and green). The poppies were stamped and die cut and added to the front. The sentiment was also die cut and added to the bottom of the card. I brushed the centres of the poppies with the Black Shimmer Brush and the sentiment with the Clear Shimmer Brush. No other embellishments were added as I felt the card was busy enough with the poppies. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
