Brenda's Blogaversary Challenge

Hi everybody

Brenda of Floral Fantasies is running a blogaversary challenge over on her blog at the moment. The idea is that you make a card based on something you see on her blog, be it her style, header, or case one of her cards. I'm not going to flatter myself and think even for a second that I could emulate Brenda's style or make a card even half as fantastic as any of hers, so I decided to use her blog header of poppies as inspiration - and from being a regular reader of Brenda's blog, poppies are a running theme, so I figured it's probably the best representation of Brenda that I can personally do with the talent that I have. So congratulations on all your followers and four years of blogging, looking forward to many more years of your creations!

The image is called Poppy Cluster by Just Inklined

Corner Die - Whimsy Corner Die Set
Papers - the darker one is Papermania Capsule Collection; 
the lighter checkered one is from Petal Fresh by LOTV
Medium - Promarkers
Pearls - Ribbon Girl
Ribbon - Ribbon Girl
Everything Else - Stickles

Aside from Brenda's challenge, I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge - 1, 2, 3 (3 embellies: diecut corners, pearls, bow)
Papertake Weekly - 1, 2, 3 (one image, two papers, three types of embellies)
Totally Gorjuss - Something Old (image, I've had it for ages)

Thanks for looking :)

  3. Oh my word Tanya, this is stunning, where do I start apart from the fact that I don't seem to have this poppy stamp so something wring there that I need to put right.

    The way you have put the image in a circle really focuses the eye and your colouring is perfection, might need to pop over for some lessons. And the tan coloured corners and matching ribbon are a perfect balance to the vivid poppies.

    Thank you so very much for taking the time to create something so lovely to join in my blog celebration and also for you very kind words which are so appreciated.
