Sweet Blossom Layout!

As soon as I opened this DCWV stack,
 I fell in LOVE with these poppies!

I wanted something SPECIAL for my home this next Spring, and I knew these flowers would be gorgeous on a wall hanging!

We actually grow the California poppies here in Phoenix, so how perfect!
Of course, my house isn't painted in this delicious red/orange herringbone, but only because the HOA would have a hissy fit! LOL!

And the little shutters?  I cut matchsticks and dyed them with a Copics marker!

I die cut the house using my Cricut, "Heritage" cartridge,
attaching it to the background poppies paper.
I then cut the flower images from a second sheet of the stack paper,
curled, and layered them.
  A bit of brown micro beads, and they come to life!
It's hard to see clearly, but the doorknob is a resin flower.

Also, difficult to see, is the background printed texture! Looks like linen!
The felt row of flowers and green lace are from Prima!
The sentiment is the heat embossed,

Thanks for looking at my project today,
and get started on those home decor items of your own! 
Friends and family LOVE handmade Christmas gifts!

What a lovely piece of home decor. Not only are your poppies fantastic, but I just love the flower trim and paper lace. A true beauty that would be a lovely addition to any home.

Again, I just love this project!! I love how you made the flowers and the little shutters and is that some Core'dinations Cardstock I spy??

This is so beautiful! I'm a softy for poppies, too, and I love how you brought them to life (so simply, too, I was expecting lots of fussing or that you had fabric ones in your stash that matched and would be impossible for me to duplicate...) Just lovely, though! Thanks so much for sharing (your creation AND how you did it!)
