April CCC


This month I took part in the April Card Chain Challenge organised by the lovely Deborah.  She sets three challenges, a sketch, a colour theme and a subject and you choose which you prefer to use. 
I received this stunning card from Barb in America, she followed the sketch and made this beauty she also sent me a little gift of some embellishments, including these lovely butterflies.
This is the card I sent to Deirdre in Ireland, I also followed the sketch, The stamps are all Hero Arts , I paperpieced the poppies and  added some black seed beads to them. This challenge is great fun, its lovely to receive a beautiful handmade card and you are never quite sure which country it is coming from!

Wonderful exchange of cards! Love your take on the design. I cheated and used twine for the stripes. :)

Your card is amazing, Sally...I love the paper-pieced poppies, they are just gorgeous! Barb did a lovely job on her card for you, too! I love how different the cards are even though using the same sketch, such wonderful creativity!
bless you,
