Guest Designing for The Flower Challenge!


I'm so honored to be invited to Guest Design with The Flower Challenge gals!

Do you think an 'anything goes' makes things easier, or more difficult?  Either way, one cannot go wrong with a flower challenge, right?   How about one with a PRIZE?  Even better!!!  MFT is the sponsor this month, and have generously given TFC designers products to play with, and TWO $25 gift cards for two #36 winners! 


I had such a difficult time choosing, but in the end just fell in love with their gorgeous Poppies Background, Poppy Blooms, and coordinating dies … you know I had to use my favorite color: grey!

Stamped with Catherine Pooler Twilight ink, onto
EH Oyster Gray cardstock, then simply Copic colored, and
die cut with the sets' coordinating dies... the little circle sentiment
was found in my snippets bin! 
Lucky for me it was cut from MFT Cement Gray cardstock
with an MFT Pierced circle dies - my first MFT buy!
 

MFT has dozens of gorgeous floral stamps... we hope you have one to use but will be happy to see any flower you have in your stash in The Flower Challenge 'anything goes' gallery!

Thanks for the visit!

Gaaaah! Such delicacy and beauty in one card. Love the contrast with the pretty peachy colors against that glorious grey (a tiny bit of alliteration never hurt anyone, huh?).This is right up The Flower Challenge alley, congratulations on your Guest Design gig. Well deserved.

So glad to have you as our GD this month, Michele !!! I love the coral tone of R20 + colors! The coral poppies look gorgeous with gray! I knew you would go with gray for the GD card :)!

Glad to have you with us on the team this month, Michele. You did a much better job with that background than I did. In fact your poppy coloring is gorgeous. This is not what I thought you were going to use but I know you've inspired our followers with this beauty.

Vicky Hayes said...

Well, you definitely know how to use those copics Michelle! You have really captured the delicacy of the poppy petals here. Love the soft grey with the peachy colours too.
