Poppy Blessings

Hi there!!!  Hope everyone has had a great weekend!  I made this card for two challenges:


To make the background, I stamped one of the images from the ODBD Bird Border and Corners set in white on white Neenah card stock and then clear embossed.  Then I sponged the whole thing with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink.  I stamped the poppy image from the Mother's Day set with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink, cut it out with the Poppy die and clear embossed the whole thing.  I used my Grand Calibur to cut out all of the Spellbinders dies.  The little tabs at the top are negatives from one of the Spellbinders Die cuts. 
Here are the supplies I used:

ODBD Poppy Die
Neenah Cream, Neenah White, Creamy Caramel and Blush Blossom card stocks
White ink and Tim Holtz inks
Clear embossing powder
Lace, ribbon and Bow Easy
Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and Labels Trio
Gold Button and Gold Brads

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your week!
