MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #229



Hi everyone!  Today, I've just finished this pretty little poppy card and wanted to share it with you.  Yesterday, I received some big news that I'm unable to share with the rest of the world.  So until it's finalized, (don't want to jinx anything), I need to stay quiet, (not easy for me).  What better way to do that, than to hole up in my craft room? :)

So I'm entering this in the MFT Sketch challenge, Click Here to Play!!!  Here's what this week's sketch looks like:


I just turned it on it's side and started with some MFT Natural Cardstock as my base.  The poppies, leaves and banner were all created using MFT's "Pretty Poppies".  New to me is a product called "irRESTISTible" Pico Embellisher by Imagine Crafts.  I was able to make these super awesome dimensional dots (the little gold dots) and when they dry, they stay rounded.  Comes in all sorts of colors, I'm buying all of them, lol!

Thanks for stopping by, have a happy Memorial Day, thank a Veteran if you have the opportunity, for the freedoms we enjoy every day.  

I've also entered my card in the following:
