The Challenge # 22 - Pretty Poppies

 
 
Hello and welcome to The Challenge # 22. This week we have an especially beautiful color combination:

I have a soft spot for all things "poppies", and this set by Clearly Besotted had to come home with me as soon as I saw it! I stamped the sentiment on sticky back linen by Claudine Helmuth Studios by Ranger Ink. As you can see from the picture I was even able to impress the linen backing using a stitched metal die! I am loving the way my card turned out, and I hope you like it too! I hope you'll play along with us at The Challenge!

Beautiful! Love the look of the stamping on the linen panel. Good to know you can use dies to emboss on the panels, too.
