Purple Poppies Card With Penny Black Stamps

Today's card is for my sister-in-law, who is recuperating from surgery.  I hope she likes it and it brings her some cheer....
I know poppies are not purple, but I really wanted to use it on these flowers today.  I guess you could say I used artistic license.
Stamps:  Penny Black Poppies 3949H and Thinking of You from Penny Black Gratitude clear set 30-105.
Other:  Spellbinder's die for purple embossed frame; Lawn Fawn stitched squares dies; amethyst gems from my stash, Spectrum Noir crystal clear sparkle pen; fun foam; Copic markers.

I stamped the poppies onto white card stock and colored them with my Copic markers.  I used the stitched square die, then brushed distress ink (dusty concord) along the outside edges.  I then framed it with the purple die cut/embossed frame, then layered it onto black.  I used fun foam to attach it to my card base, to give it dimension.

A strip of decorative paper and some of the same card stock as the frame along the left edge give it some interest.  I gave the flowers some sparkle with my Spectrum Noir crystal clear sparkle pen.  I stamped the verse, and added some gems to finish off the card front.

Here's a peek at the inside....
Simon Says Stamp Prayers stamp set and die.  I don't know who the sprig was in my stash unmounted.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Penny Black At Allsorts Challenge - All things spring

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Spring or Easter

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Showers and/or flowers

I made several cards today.  Some for our church card ministry to send to parishioners in hospitals or shut-ins, and a few for relatives and friends....just because.   I was on a roll!  This was my last one for the day.

Thank you for visiting.  




  1. I do like your design here Lynda, it's a PB Poppy image that I particularly like and also use artistic licence when colouring Poppies. And your use of the black and white paper works perfectly to balance the card, love it.

    Many thanks for joining us at Penny Black and More challenge this month.
