Suzy B's Blooming Challenge Blog August 23rd

This week at Suzy B's Blooming Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Lacy Sunshine and I was lucky to use one of her Flower Pot Pretties Poppy!!! I love poppies and I remember them growing at my grandmother's near the outhouse . . . . whenever they would bloom, it would rain but I always loved the orangish red color of them!!!!

No rain on my Poppy as she just wants to say "hello"

  • card is a 6 x 6 inch card using DCWV cardstock from my scrap drawer and can't seem to find the original stack it came from
  • backgrounds were cut 5.75 inch using Recollections Black/White Pad and 5.5 inch using DCWV Scrapbook Kit Stack Love & Wedding
  • image was colored using Spectrum Noir Markers with gel accents
  • sentiment, "Just saying HELLO", was a freebie from Create with TLC  which was placed in a teeny tiny envelope made from scraps which measures 1-inch (what was I thinking???)
  • red pearls were added to her ears for earrings with yellow pearls for the center of the red flowers both from Queen & Co.
  • red little flowers were in a card from a dear friend, Edwina Brown which I just love and make the purrfect accent for Poppy
  • red ribbon is from Darice Satin Edge Organza 1-inch ribbon and then tied into a bow
