Pretty Poppies



Bold Red Poppies and a wee bit of Cricut sentiments here and there make up for cards packing a vivid image. Last year I bought a pack of Poppy paper from M's and I was so taken with these beautiful red flowers on that black paper I could not bring myself to do anything with the pack but put it aside to admire. However, in this pack I found a few sheets of nothing but punch outs. I detached each one and stacked them in a box for later use. Here are the results of just sort of slamming cards together using the punch outs. These cards basically made themselves.
Not all of the flowers were the Red Poppies. There were punch outs of happy little white and orange daisies and they are holding their own on these cards. The background papers here are from a 4x6 black and white pattern paper card pack, and it is quite a decision to shift from page to page trying to decide which one of these lovely papers to use.
Hope you like these bold cards. TFL.
