Perfect Poppies

     It's Wednesday and time for another New Release set from MHK Designs.  Today we're focusing on "Perfect Poppies" and I fell in love with this set the minute I saw it!  You can see a photo of the entire set at the end of this post or by clicking on this link.

     Here's the card I did with the corner image:

     I love how this card developed.  I had no idea where it was going when I started.  It's colored with a combination of ProMarkers and chalk markers.  I started to fussy cut the image and then used a doily die from Cheery Lynn to take a scalloped 'bite' out of one corner.

     I used 1/4 of the doily to make the upper corner and used a Cheery Lynn corner scroll die to cut the lower corner of a scrap piece of golden harvest CS.  I backed that scroll with dp from the MHK Designs "Going Gingham in Brights" set, and then inlaid the scroll piece back into the CS from which it was cut, letting the dp show through.  Both the doily and the scroll are embossed, as is the gingham dp.

     I printed the sentiment (also from the Perfect Poppies set), fussy cut it, and adhered it to the doily piece.  The bow is a double bow made from satin ribbon and lace ribbon.  I really like the vintage look of the design and the image.  I think this is a perfect spring card, filled with flowers and delicate die cuts, showcasing my favorite time of year (meaning before it gets too hot!  :-D )
