Flowers Whisper......

The sun is finally hiding behind the clouds today, hopefully rain is in the forecast to bring some relief from the past nine days of heat.  This is the first year in a long, long time that the weather has been nice for the entire 10 days of Calgary Stampede, we usually get some wild weather, but today is the last day and so far so good!

My card today features the Kraftin' Kimmie image "Poppy" from the creative mind of artist Annie Rodrigue, who was one of the first stamp lines I fell in love with after being introduced to Copics.   Don't even ask me how many of her stamps I own - the count is so high that I need to find a bigger case to store the images!! 
The image was colored with Copics then matted and mounted on to the designer paper.  The edges of the first layer of dp were decorated with a Martha Stewart punch, then popped up on the card front dp.  Poppies are cut with a Memory Box die, the sentiment is included with the image, and the sentiment frame is from the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three.  The edges of the dp and sentiment were inked with Ranger's Rusty Hinge distress ink.
