STAMPlorations Inspiration #31

It's a great day to bring you some more inspiration from the Inspiration Team over at STAMPlorations!  We've got some fabulous projects to share with you.  And if you'd like to play along too feel free to CASE my card, or one of the other DT's cards from today's post.  Or if you want, CASE Karen's card from the CASEplorations post.  It's up to you who you CASE.  If you do play along with us you could win a prize!  Anyway, here's my card...

(All stamps are by STAMPlorations)

My first step was to cut a circle opening out of a black cardstock panel and then emboss it with my woodgrain folder (Darice).  Then, using my black panel as a guide, I stamped my poppy image (Bloom Sketches set) and coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I stamped the sentiment (Frames and Flowers set, Dee's Artsy Impressions) in black.  Lastly, I attached my black panel to my card base.  I was inspired by THIS CARD I saw on Pinterest.  I loved the look of the black with the orange/red flowers.

I do hope you'll join us and CASE a card.  I look forward to seeing your awesome projects!

Have a lovely day and thanks for visiting!
