The Stamping Boutique Poppies

My card is for our challenge that starts today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps. It's the Midweek Throwdown challenge and the theme is Tags n' Twine.  For a little extra added fun you can add "miss you" to the theme too!  The "miss you" part of the theme was added after I had my card ready so it's a birthday card but I did look through some of my previously made cards and I'll add a couple "miss you" themed at the end of my post just for fun.

My flowers came from The Stamping Boutique, I made my card using their Poppies and colored with Copic markers:  R32, R35, R46, R59, YG03, YG63, YG67, Y15, Y18.

The cardstock colors are Via Vellum Leaf Green, Cranberry, Astrobrights Solar Yellow & Neenah Solar White.  My layout is Operation Write Home Sketch #82 and I added a Spellbinders tag stamped with Papertrey Ink "happy birthday" and a button and my kinda twine for a finishing touch.
My kinda twine is just white crochet thread from a big box store.

This is a Hannah Lynn Designs digital image, you can read about her here.

And this cute image is by A Day For Daisies, you can read about the Copic color numbers and papers, etc. here.

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

What a fabulous poppy image and so beautifully colored too of course! I love the way tags look and yet never seem to use them much on my cards. They really are a great way to add a sentiment too. I will need to try a little harder to make this part of my bag of tricks. :)
