Flourishes LC - Beautiful Inside and Out

Hello friends, I hope you are having a good week - inspite of the crazy weather that is happening world wide.  We have been having a heat wave and there is more to come next week - what better time to create in The Studio and stay cool - here is the first of quite a few cards I have created...and will share in time.

      The image is from the Flourishes LC  - Year in Flower 2  illustrated by Beverly Cole

The Poppy image has been stamped onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink and coloured using Chameleon Pens.  It has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares onto a negative die - from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Seth Apter Robo Bar Etched Die. Patterned paper from a second negative Die has been added to the lower portion

The sentiment banner has also been stamped onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink .  It has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares below the image.  The layered image has been popped up across the negative die.

A strip of corrugated card has been added across the paper join, followed by lace and some twine,  Finishing off with Want2Scrap pearls and a pretty little flower button,
