POPPY LOVE

The Flower Challenge this month is to CASE designer Therese Calvird's card and the theme at CAS Watercolour Challenge is "love".


Therese designs gorgeous cards and this is no exception.  Much as I wanted to use the same die as she did, I resisted and chose another favorite of mine.


Basically made the card the same way she did - die cut the flower, added a watercolored piece behind and added the die cut back in. Die cut the "love" in black and added glossy accents on top.  The "you" was stamped in black and embossed in clear. Added the sentiment and some Nuvo drops and done!  Inside is "happy valentine's day".





Thanks for stopping by and enjoy reading your kind comments.
