I’m glad the DT got to have fun alongside the Alumni Team!!
With mine, one die led to another…then another…!

I used Brocade Border Die, Poppy Die and Crocheted Circle Die along with the stamps, Birthday Blessings, Mother’s Day, Brocade Borders and Serve The Lord.

Lots of sponging with Distress inks Crushed Olive, Forest Moss and Dried Marigold! The Poppies are colored with Copics. The DP is Bo Bunny Garden Girl, pearls by Zva.

Oh wow - where to start in admiring this snapshot of summer colour. Of course I love the poppy, but those green brocade frames with the little white accents are just WOW. I'm guessing those panels are air-brushed, so I can't hope to emulate them.
