Silver Poppies

Welcome

First I would like to say a very warm  'hello' to
 Jen Thompson of Dare To be Different 
Leanne of Leearts
who have both chosen to follow  my blog - thank you for the compliment ladies.



This card started with the blue rectangle cut with a MB stitched die. 
The Poppies are a Sweet n Sassy stamp, and the word 'sister' is from the same set, and both were stamped with versa mark and silver embossed.


The greeting is cut from silver glitter card using a S/B die, and was inserted into the card front.
The butterflies were punched from the same glitter card


As the rectangle die cut is smaller than our (NZ) A4 card front, I offset it on the base, and added a silver ribbon and bow to the end.  I wiped the edges of the white base over a blue ink pad.
