Penny Black at Allsorts - Say it with flowers

I was lucky enough to win a prize on last months challenge - thanks very much

Right onto this month! my friend asked me to maker her mum a 5oth card using my poppies which i just love using anyway. She's into monochrome so i used the opportunity to make a designer type feel for her mum.

I have used some papers, sentiment and border frame from craftwork, the frame has been distressed.

I stamped the poppies onto a white blank and did them again with white embossing powder onto some black spotty paper which i think is doodlebug, i cut the heads out and 3'd them. I have glittered the poppy heads with some german glass glitter. The black flowers are a martha stewart poinsettia punch and i have layered them onto a flourish punch and added some gems. I have also punched some small daisies. I have added some further gems across the card.

The numbers are embossed in silver and cut out, they are crafter companion stamps.

You can find the challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts

Hopefully it will be perfect for her mum and i have certainly "said it with flowers"
