PPA 217

Today is Thursday and there is a Sketch Challenge at Pals paper Arts.

Here is the sketch:

I enjoy making square cards, but I don't often do it.  I wanted to use my Pleasant Poppies stamp set to say goodbye to summer.  Each day we are getting closer to Fall, which is fine, but I will miss the flowers of spring and summer.

I used a Wild Wasabi card base, a Basic Black die cut and whisper White for the image. 

 First I sponged the Whisper White with Wild Wasabi Ink.  Then I stamped the Poppies with Memento Ink.  I colored the flowers and stems with Blendabilities and then stamped the background with an image from Gorgeous Grunge.  The sentiment is from Ray of Sunshine.


  1. Gorgeous card. I would never have guessed the green was all one color the way it turned out. It really pops with color, kind of perfect for summer going into fall.

  2. WOW! Diane! I love how vibrant this is! Beautifully done!

  3. A bright and beautiful farewell. Gorgeous!

  4. Wonderful send off to summer Diane! Love they way the poppies "pop"!

  5. What a lovely card! Bright and cheery.
