Flowers

 I have found a bit of time this afternoon to make two cards for the current Lily Pad Challenge "Flowers" .  I have been having fun with my new Distress Stains and the Poppy Background from Hero Arts, one of my old favorites.  The top card is a window one, I was inspired after seeing this beautiful card that Virginia created.
































The second card  is really simple, I stamped the image with my stains and added the PP and punched edge plus the twine to finish.

Its a beautiful day here in Surrey and I am off to sit in the garden for a while, hope you have a fun weekend.

Sally both your cards are stunning! The background on both of them is goergeous and I keep wondering how you did that frame and flower cutout in the first one... It's a mystery to me!!! LOL!!!! Thank you for joining the fun at lily pad cards!

Both are so pretty Sally. I haven't tried using the stains to ink up a stamp, but this looks so beautifully rustic like this.

That window card is stunning, Sally - love the colours & the highlights on the poppies are fabulous! I am definitely in awe of how you can make the same stamp have so many different looks :) Enjoy the beautiful weather!

I LOVE your take with the same stamps! Both are gorgeous! AND it's even more surprising to me that you were inspired by one of my cards (shocking!!). Love how you used the two Poppy Stamps for the window design! Absolutely FABULOUS! Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous creations!
