Colour INKspiration 3rd Birthday Blog Hop - Painted Poppies

Wow, I can't believe the Colour INKspiration team are celebrating their third birthday today and I felt so honored to be asked back, as a past team member, to be part of the blog hop today.

If you've hopped here from the amazing Julia Quinn then welcome or if you have joined the hop from my blog, make sure you hop back and check out Julia's gorgeous creation. Her work is always beautiful!!

So Bronwyn allowed us to pick any colour combo I wanted and I was instantly going to go with a Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana combo, but then I thought about which stamps I wanted to use and I really couldn't go past the gorgeous poppies. And so with that in mind, my colours for the hop today are, Poppy Parade, Black and Gold,

And here is the card that I created with those colours.

How beautiful is this poppy stamp! I can already tell, this whole suite; paper, stamps, dies and embellishments are going to be a huge seller. Plus the new scalloped stitched rectangles are a must have for absolutely everyone.

The sentiment is actually from a carryover set called Gather Together, and i thought the font and sentiment was perfect for this card.

So guys, a few important notes for you. You can enter as many times as you like and the challenge will run for a whole month over the summer ‘break’ until February the 10th. That gives you plenty of time to create something gorgeous, just like yourselves. 
Now, seems the perfect time for you to hop on over and check out the next amazing card, which happens to be super talented and very dear friend Denita Wright-Smee. You are going to love what she has to share with you all.

Happy Crafting,
