I had such a tough time deciding what image to use...they're all SO adorable! But I landed on Poppy Bittybloom...I adore her expression! I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #45 for the layout.
In case you hadn't noticed, when I created this card I was in the mood for texture and dimension, and lots of it! I started by stamping Poppy three times with Memento Tuxedo black onto Bella's Bestest Paper. I paper pieced her shirt and hat then coloured the rest with copics. I cut out all around her, and yes, between her legs and arms too. I've seen lots of people in blogland cutting out their images and layering it onto a shape so I thought I'd give it a try. Verdict is...I LOVE THIS LOOK!!!! I used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder to add a little texture to the white circle before adhering Poppy. I used plenty of pop dots on this card...the flower on her hat is popped once and the flower she's holding is popped twice then I bent up the edges of the petals for even more dimension. I added black Flower Soft to the flower center.
I really wanted to use black ruffled ribbon but I didn't have any, so I created by own by pleating the ribbon and stitching along the top edge. I love the look and it was pretty easy to do!
The rest of the card is simple...some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Pretty Please line, a white flower border and some layers of Prism blush red dark and blush red medium. I added a little sparkle with some Platinum Glitter Dots.
There's a prize hidden somewhere along the hop so be sure to leave some love for a chance to win!
