Amy R's challenge

Amy's got another great sketch this week. Check it out!

I was at Michael's the other day and they had a really cute Mat Stack by Autumn Leaves called Pretty Poppies marked down. Forty sheets of patterned paper, 6.5" x 4.5" for $2.39!!! Needless to say, it came home with me. Even though I'm on a use it up kick, I could not pass that up! This card was designed using three of those papers. The mailman brought me a nice surprise yesterday too! My new Nestabilities Labels Four dies. The rest are still on back-order. Maybe I'll have them before CHA July!! So I opened those bad-boys up and used them to cut the Citrus Leaf and White Daisy cardstock. I used CTMH Treasure Life and Grey Flannel for the background flowers. I cut the poppy out of one of the pieces of DP and pop dotted it onto the background stamping. I used my EK Success scalloped border to cut the black cardstock. The brads were white! I put Glossy Accents on them and dipped them in Sparkle n Sprinkle Spirited Green glitter.
