Poppies and Scrapy Land

Today is the BIG day when we start the new and improved challenge at Scrapy Land!  It's an "ANYTHING GOES" challenge and all you have to do is make a card or project that incorporates one or more dies from the brands that Scrapy Land carries!     This is so easy to do because we all have dies and Scrapy Land carries over 40 different brands.  The challenge runs for 2 weeks and the winner will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to the store!  They have great prices there and also carry stamps, Copics, and other supplies.

The poppy die that I used for this is from Memory Box and can be found in the store here and it's called Prim Poppy.  I embossed the background with a wood grain folder and popped it up on dimensionals.  The poppies were added and then a strip of patterned paper.  I then added another die ( A Little Thanks) from Memory Box for the sentiment.  This was cut out four times and stacked.  The red gingham ribbon was added and it was complete.

Be sure and check out our blog and see all the wonderful inspiration from the DT,  see the rules for the challenge at the Scrapy Land blog, and enter!

Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

Brenda said...

Wow Lynn, I so love this card! It is so elegant and just plain beautiful, love that little pop of red in the ribbon. I was over looking a little at the dies Scrapy Land has and I found one that I own!! I only looked at a few so imagine my surprise when I saw one I own, but haven't used yet. Momma Mary gave it to me and I've cut it out but haven't put it on a card yet. So my goal is to get a card made with it and join in on the challenge. lol Hugs, Brenda
