Two new cards

In all the PK blog hop excitement, I forgot all about showing you these two cards I made for friends of mine!

Two totally different cards using the same beautiful image.
 



I used kraft card for both cards. LOVE kraft card and keep getting it out and putting it back, getting it out, putting it back! Ha Ha! Bit the bullet and used it eventually, 'coz it's too gorgeous not to!
The poppy stamp is by Dimension Fourth.
The stamp is part of a gorgeous set of four flowers. Tulip, Rose, Poppy and Poppy corner.
I coloured my poppies with Copics,  framed the image with a Nestie label and that was basically that. 
I used a piece of SU DSP on the top one and embossed a diamond pattern using my Score-Pal..
The three white pearls and the bold ribbon added the finishing touches.

Stop by tomorrow for a new Peachy Keen Challenge.

Have a great day everyone!

Those are SO pretty! I love poppies. I lived in France for a year and a half and they had poppies that just grew wild. I LOVE them and I LOVE these cards.
