This is the poster that I chose for mine http://www.posters.com/pv-444755_Poppies.html
I used a photo that reminded me of the Poem Flander's Field, this poem speaks of the soldiers that are lost in the war and that every poppy represents a fallen soldier and that we must never forget.
I printed the image onto WW cs then mounted this image onto Ruby Red. At the bottom of this Ruby Red matt I used a border die by Spellbinders which allows you to cut, emboss and pierce the desing. I think it looks terrific. The first panel is Old Olive which I popped-up my main panel with dimensionals.
I really love the way this one came out. REMEMBER!
This is my card for Friday July 03/09 challenge. The challenge is hosted by Faith today and it's to use metal somewhere on our card.
I am sorry for being so late posting this challenge card. There has been a lot of family stuff going on that has kept me busy.
This is an adorable little set by Sweet n Sassy called "Make a Wish". you can find this set at. http://www.sweetnsassystamps.biz/shop/
I stamped the owl in Chocolate Chip ink then colored him with SU markers. I then stamped the image again on a piece of textured brown cs and cut out and pasted the tummy part.
The image was then mounted onto Nestabilities circles cut from River Rock which I left on the die and sponged on some Purely Pomegranate for contrast, the scallops in Chocolate Chip and Purely Pomegrante.
This is where the metal came into play, I used it to hold my main circle to my card. I thought these brackets were so cute because the were shaped like little leaves.
For the bg I used River Rock and Purely Pomegranate and finished by making a sentiment using the same "Make a Whish" set onto River Rock and matting it in Purely Pomegranate.
I punched a small hole, threaded a thin simple Pomegranate colored ribbon and tied to the card.
I hope you like him, he's so sweet and makes a great masculine BD card.
Hugs always, Nicole
