Poppy Seed Challenge #2

Just a really quick post today.I love doing challenges,photo/colour inspirations and sketches.I was surfing the web a couple of weeks ago and came across this great blog Poppy Paperie and she had just started the poppy seed challenge where she gives you three little seeds to work with. It is such a fun idea and it really does inspire you.I used the first challenge as a just for fun challenge at a crop I go to and it went down really well.There is a new challenge this week Poppy Paperie #2 .

Here's my take on this challenge.

I used all Stampin'Up supplies.I stamped the kraft card base with the Polka Dot background stamp and white ink. I used the Trendy Tree set of stamps which are so cute and added a button to the middle tree,the edges were inked in Mellow Moss ink.I then started matting the image on to card stock then some PP from To the Nines Designer Paper series and paper pricking the top and bottom edge.I then used the scallop edge border punch on Mellow Moss card stock and attached to the base card and I finally finished off with some Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon.
I can't wait for the next Poppy Seed Challenge,it really is good fun.
Have a good weekend !
