Poppies from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, my card this morning features one of the new stamps from Chocolate Baroque, this image is from Poppy Meadow, the other new stamp sheet is called Fancy Flowers and is just as beautiful. You can see them both here, at a bargain price but even better Glenda has a giveaway so you could win them! Have a look here to find out more.

I stamped the image and coloured with Graph'It Markers before inking the edges with Peeled Paint distress ink. The background was made using various shades of green distress ink and the wrinkle free distress technique. I over stamped the background with one of the lovely border stamps from Floral Edges. I've matted the image and background on white card then red card and added some gingham ribbon to finish off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
C is for Challenge: flowers

Thanks for popping by today

  6. This is lovely with your multiple matting & the simple embellishing using the gingham ribbon. The overstamping using the floral edges is very effective & really helps to draw the eye.
