Pleasant Poppies for Jan

This is the birthday card I did for my friend Jan.



The poppies were stamped with Soft Suede and colored with Stampin' Up! Markers by coloring the petals first with Pink Pirouette then swiping the Primrose marker on a plastic lid and picking up the color with a blender pen to add depth to the petals.

There was a little smudge around the flowers so I spritzed some Raspberry Ripple with the Color Spritzer tool (retired).  I find that it's a good way to disguise a boo boo.

I did the antenna by snipping a tiny piece of black scrap and adhering it to the underside of the butterfly with a glue dot.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

I just love your poppy card and the antenna was very clever as well as spritzing to cover any boo boos! Your friend will tresure this card. Great card!

Love this color combo...so bright & regal looking. Enjoyed reading about your 'save' too. Wonderful coloring on your poppies, liked the aperture layout with your little b/fly. I'm lovin' all the versatility you show with the Mesh EF too. Very strikingly used on this card, Miss Bonnie. TFS & Hugs

Very pretty., Bonnie!! Let me start off with the butterfly, what a clever idea with the antenna!! And the Spritz was a perfect way to cover up those mistakes. I could not find it at all!! :)
