Papercraft Star Challenge 63

This weeks challenge at Papercraft Star is to use a sketch by the super talented Kim of Paper Loves Glue! The poppy stamp came from Hero Arts. I just love poppies! I stamped the poppy twice on white cardstock then used several shades of Copic markers to color the images. Next I cut about a half inch into the strip on both sides to appear as if I cut out the flowers. I punched a couple of strips of Ripe Avocado cardstock to layer behind the poppies. This was then layered onto Terracotta Tile cardstock. I used a Marta Stewart punch with Fabric Circles 065 to make my little butterfly. I used a couple of Stampin' Up! stamps onto thee diary page from Blank Backgrounds, punched it out and popped it up. I finished my card by adding a punch of pearls along the scalloped edges.
You have until 6am Monday eastern time to link up to Papercraft Star using this sketch.
I hope to see you there! The design team has created some amazing projects to inspire you. Plus you could win some fabulous digital download from our sponsor The House Across The Bay!
