Flourishes Poppy Patch


Today is Veteran's Day and I know all of you are praying for our troops...What bravery they must have and I am so proud of all that they are doing for our country!

This card is made with Flourishes Poppy Patch stamps. Also, Flourishes Many Sentiments (Thank You). The cardstock is SU's Green Galore...DP paper is from Once Upon A Time and SU's Groovy Guava DP Series. I colored with my Copic Markers and Copic Glitter Pens. I wish the glitter would have shown up in these pictures, because that is what makes this card so beautiful in person. Alas, I really need to take some photography classes...but when? Working full time and family makes it hard to find the time. One day...I also used by Cuttlebug Rectangle Folders and a white singo pen and one Swarovsky Crystal for the middle of the Poppy Flower.



Gotta run...Dentist today....ugh! Have a great week all :)

What a wonderful card in celebration of our brave troops Velta - this is a beautiful tribute and reminder of our troops both past and present who have fought for our freedom. I know what you mean about finding time to do a photography class - something I've always wanted to do too! Well - there's always "someday" LOL!

If you take a photography course, I want to do enroll with you.

Poppies, poppies, poppies! That's what the Wicked Witch of the West said on the Wizard of Oz. Everytime I hear the word poppies, that's what I think of.

I love the card. I like the detail in the zoom shot. Interesting.

We should all give thanks for our military!

Oh, Velta, so gorgeous!! I just ordered three sets from Flourishes (because of you - do you get commission?). I can't remember if this is one of them. If not, I'll have to get this one too! WOW!

Such an amazing array of eye candy here.
