Darkroom Door - Pretty Poppies

Hello friends, I have had a couple of days with very little time on the computer as it was my birthday and I hada lovely time with all of the family - and my precious grandson - of course.  But I am back this evening with  card just 'for you'!

The image is Pretty Poppies by Darkroom Door and has been stamped using Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  I have coloured it using Chameleon Pens - you can see more of the detail in the close up photo.

I have added touched of white around the middle of the poppy centres using a white gel pen. 

Want2Scrap Beautiful Bling Borders by Nina Brackett have been added to the lower edge of the image and Orange Rhinestones added along the Bling Borders.  The image has been cut/embossed using  the Spellbinders  A-2 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies and The Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform 

Next it has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The sentiment is from the Penny Black Inc. Tiny Wishes stamp set and has been stamped using Black Ink and cut/embossed using Spellbinders Standard Circles SML then layered onto a slightly larger circle.  Faux stitching has been added and 3 small rhinestones, the sentiment is adhered using double sided tape.
