With Love from Me to You


Hello there and happy, happy Thursday!  I'm popping in with a CAS little number for the current Runway Inspired challenge.  I'm going to be honest and say I love this card more in real life than I do on the old computer screen.  I took inspiration from the stripes and embossed some gold stripes on the bottom of the sentiment panel.  I think added the Verve sentiment and poppies.  It took everything in me not to stamp the leaves in green. I'm a rule follower when it comes to colors or as Erin would say, "I'm a literal girl!"  So I was quite proud that I stuck with the black leaves as it felt a bit trendier.  What about you?  Literal? Trendy?  Neither?!

  5. I'm loving it on the screen so I'm sure it is a stunner in real life :) Gorgeous use of the poppy and the overlap is brilliant. Loving the black leaves too - I'm a rule follower and literal person too :)

  7. This card is stunning and it's given me a great idea for a card for my father-in-law. Well done for not colouring the leaves!!

  18. Totally literal. I have to force myself to not colour something it's "real life" colour. I always admire when other people do it - I just have to shift gears in my literal brain! LOL!
    As for your card - it rocks! I love the popped up panel and that flower is gorgeous!!
