Prairie Fairy Poppies

Hello again! I was so pleased to win an image from Prairie Fairy Friday's challenge for something 3D and Valentine related. To see the winning project, go here. :) I chose the amazing poppy image--I've already showed you something else I made with it, but I felt I needed to use it for my next submission to the Prairie Fairy Friday challenge! :) This week, they have a sketch!!!

Here's the sketch~

I did take a little bit of liberty--I added a sentiment and moved the paper pieces a bit. I also didn't add any "3" at the top as the polka dot paper didn't look right with anything...you'll see.

I'd also like to enter this into the Pile It On challenge "Spots or stripes or both!" As you'll be able to see, I've gone spots! ;)

Here's my card~

Details~



This is the fifth and last card that I made for a co-worker. She commissioned me to make 5 sympathy cards from me. She told me she's gonna let me know when she needs more cards--she was very happy with the other ones I've given her! :) This is the first time I've been paid to make cards for someone, so it was a really awesome experience!

I colored in the beautiful digi Poppies image with blender pens and SU! inks, then went over the lines with glitter gel pens to add more depth. What do you think? I hope you like it! I also hope you come and play along with Prairie Fairy Fridays! Happy stamping! :)
