Poppy Elf

Morning peeps, how's your day doing :) :) :) Today I am sharing with you a birthday card I have made for my daughter using the image Poppy Elf by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff available from the store in rubber.

To begin with I coloured the image with Polychromos

Next I took some purple card for my base and added a red mat.  I then mounted my image on black, red and purple.  For the black mat of the card I first embossed it and the added some Purple Pan Pastels to highlight some of the embossed texture.  Red organza ribbon, purple lace and a string of pearls were added to form a border at the base of the card.  With these elements of the card ready I turned to die cutting and used the most beautiful poppy die by Memory Box and white card.  The die is really an outline of a poppy so I kept all the cut out pieces from the poppy and coloured them red.  The outline section of the die was then coloured with red where the poppy leaves are and green for the leaves and swirls.  Now for the finishing touches :) with the elements all stuck in place I added a Happy Birthday sentiment and a lovely red bow and finally 4 purple heart gems.

For the inside of the card I used the same colours, the black corner die is from Tattered Lace and called Chantilly Diamond.  Another 3 purple hearts were added and a few red stickles to bring the colours together in this area.
