And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Poppy Field

Hello sketch lovin' friends!  There's so much happening at Our Daily Bread Designs and Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps that I've been stamping like crazy this week, but today is Saturday and that means it's time for another wonderful sketch at The Sweet Stop!

For my sample, I pulled out one of my very favorite flower sets to color, Poppies and Greetings by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!

Creative Nugget:  The card front was created by layering two patterns of paper by FabScraps onto True Black card stock, and mounting that to a Kraft card base.  The poppy image was stamped several times across the Neenah Solar Crest panel, and again onto another small scrap piece.  The poppies were colored with Copic Markers and three of them from the scrap piece were fussy cut to pop onto the base layer to create dimension.  The Scallop Border Dies were stitched to the poppy panel and attached to the card front.  A Tiny Tag sentiment, ribbon, and a pearl were added to finish the card.  I like how the poppies seem to pop off the page! 

Check out more amazing samples by the Sugar Babies and join us this week over at The Sweet Stop!
