Creative Card Crew Challenge Blog 7/7/09 and Alphabet Challenge 9/7/09

The challenge this week on the Creative Card Crew is to use ribbons. Well that was so hard for me .......................not, as I so love ribbons!!!

The challenge this week on the Alphabet Challenge is "P is for .........." and I decided it was P for poppies as I've recently bought some digital images from Sketching Stamper and one was of some poppies. I love poppies but it does make me sad that a few blows of the wind when they open and then they are sometimes blown all away.

I have used Summer Driggs papers and have watercoloured the poppies and decoupaged them on the card. For some added dimension I have used some of my swirl U-mount stamps and stamped different sized swirls on the backing paper.

Oh wow Kym this is quite beautiful love the papers and those poppies are just lovely. I have some of the oriental red poppies and you are quite right it seems as soon as they bloom it either pours with rain and the petals fall or it blows a gale and again they fall. They lasted for about 4 days this year lol. Never mind they are worth seeing when they are out.
