The Monthly Challenge at Stampendous for September is
EMBOSSING TECHNIQUES!
Click HERE to see how I used
and a bit of ink to create this earlier project!.
The result was this shimmery, gorgeous tag giving those vintage colors
an extra pop!

Poppies poppin' everywhere!

Love these flowers and I can't put this new stack from
DCWV

"Sweet Blossom"
This stack is brand new and available at Michael's this month!
 
The pattern of this paper keeps drawing me back. I am going to need more poppies!
This card was SO simple!
I simply cut the black mats from the Tres Chic Stack because it has such deep texture and is true black...
Then I cut the background poppy pattern paper just 1/4 inch smaller,
and continued fussy cutting additional flowers to layer over, popping them up at various heights. The glitter centers add just a bit of elegance.
 
The sentiment is one I've used before, too, and love it!
It's from Stampendous,
"Flower Path"
and you can get it here.
 
The sparkle is also compliments of Stampendous, and is the
"Silver Halo" glitter.
 
The finishing touch is a silver flower charm attached with some black twine! I love adding charms and beads to my cards! Gives them that little dab of dimension.
 
Please, leave me a comment and let me know you came by!
