Poppies in the Fall

Oh Fall colors are so much fun to play with... as are these challenges... I am doing five with this card... and I really have been working on this card for a few days... just couldnt get it out!!!  So here it is..

I love this card... sometimes when you make a card it is nice... and you really like the way it turns out... this is one of those.. I love the way this came together... and it didn't take me that long to do it... which was even nicer. 

The Flower I made with Tissue paper and Tim Holtz Flower die cut... in the center I put a purple oddly shaped circle with some stamen  that I punched... wild isn't it???

A closeup of the flower..    

It shows the center a little bit better... which is really fun. 

Anyway... I used the Grand Lace die from Spellbinders for the black lace... and then the Square Eyelet die for the Just Right frame and Hope saying... The paper is by K and Company... and  is was one of those sheets of paper that you save for something special... well this is one of those special occassions..

As I said this card was done for a few challenges...
The first one was for Midnight Maddness #71... 
A sketch challenge... I followed thru with the flower... it was just right for me for these other challenges as well. 

Kelly Jo's stamp Pad did a color chef challenge.. you had to use Black and white as a base with purple and orange added...

Reasonable Ribbon Challenge wanted us to use this picture for an inspiration...
so I picked the colors up and moved them around a little bit... I am going to use this one again hopefully... maybe today I will use it for another card ... thanks..  I love this picture.. 

Okay... now I might be pushing this one a little bit... but Paper Sundaes 
we use 3 different types of embellishments... I used lace..(paper)
Ribbon, and a flower... so maybe that is okay...

This will also go onto my Flicker challenge for this weeks entries... yeah..
I love this one... very vivid and bright...
I think that as you are growing up, there is a time in your life when you create different colors in your living quarters... we had a house that I used the colors of black and white and added RED... wow... that was some living room... It wasn't for too long... but I did LOVE it.. this card reminds me of that too..

Hope that you have a good day today... it looks a little overcast here... and we have to run up the mountain to go food shopping, and also to meet some people... Thank you for stopping by for a visit.... and maybe when I get back I can play some more... I would certainly enjoy that.. Thanks again... and enjoy your day..

Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
