For my card, I started with some warm autumnal colors using Fancy Pants As You Wish paper pad.  I stamped the warm mustard panel with Verve's Better Together stamp set using the background image stamped in versamark to create some subtle texture.  I layered a vintage cream doily and a deep turquoise tag using Verve's Flourished Tag die set.  I used Verve's Floral Notes stamp set and stamped the poppies image.  I die cut with Verve's Floral Notes die set.  I colored the image with copics in warm shades of burnt oranges and fall greens.  I added some wink of stella to the centers of the poppies.  For the sentiment, I used the same Floral Notes stamp set.  I finished my card with a mini clothespin, some loose ombre embroidery thread, and  few of  Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.

  30. I love the different coloured stripes in the background and then the kraft card has those little dots which add lots of interest. The poppies in that burnt orangy red colour against the turquoise tag and the doily tucked behind with the embroidery thread together with the sentiment and little clear sequins make this a very pretty card Betty. x
