Silhouette Poppies

Hello fellow stampers!
After an incredibly busy day I'm managing to get a couple of minutes to sit down and do this posting for the Friday Sketchers challenge. It was a fabulous layout by Heidi and I decided to use another new release stamp from The Stamp Barn. This is a silhouette poppy stamp which I stamped, stamped off, then stamped off again to achieve the shaded look. I wanted to keep the colours fairly simply so used SU! green dp and complemented the black ink with black cardstock. I love the dramatic look of black against the white and green. I used three dew drops in place of flowers - flowers would have overshadowed the beautiful silhouette of the poppies. I punched out a word window tab and stamped my sentiment on there (also The Stamp Barn). For the far left panel on the sketch I used a strip of black organza ribbon and tied a bow at the top with some hemp string. The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory.
Wishing you all a very Happy Valentine's Day! It's my mom's birthday today and was so happy she loved her Tilda card I made for her! I hope you all enjoy a LOVEly day - my DH is sick so we won't be going anywhere!! boo hoo :(
Thanks for stopping by and leaving all your beautiful comments! They so make my blogging worthwhile!! :)
Hugs,
