Poppy Sketches #4: hello. my friend

This is post 2 of 2 for me today...click HERE for the Top Dog Dies/The Twinery Blog Hop!


Hello & Happy Monday!

We're back with a new challenge over at 



Our Super Sponsor is



I played with



and the coordinating



Here's how I was inspired:


I heat embossed the sentiment in gold and stitched down the vellum strip with gold thread.

The Fri-Dies are awesome and cut so clean and crisp.  I bought some scrapbooking paper in the Target $ spot and sadly it is SUPER thin.  Check out how wonderful those blooms look.  The dies work beautifully.

My patterned panel is from the My Minds Eye Market Street Collection.  I used the Nob Hill paper pad.  The enamel centers of the bloom are also from My Minds Eye.

I can't wait to see how the challenge inspires you!
