You may know by now that my favorite color is grey. THIS is a whole lot of color for this girl - but I'm feeling up to the challenge! Altenew's Inspiration challenge for February 2021 to be exact!
Even though my stash didn't include a Bird of Paradise, I was so lucky to have an Altenew win at the end of 2020 - this gorgeous Craft-a-flower Poppy layering set came to live with me - hope you like it! I have a feeling it will be used quite a lot. I've used just one of the blooms on my card...
I have to share a little closeup of this gorgeous Dotted Starburst debossing, and the gorgeous layers of this die set ...
Several of Altenew's Rounded Rectangles were cut from Neenah 110# cardstock, and layered to create this frame - even the last final smallest rectangle was cropped for the perfect spot for my simple sentiment - from Fresh Freesia.
My layered Poppy was cut from my small stash of colored cardstocks... so happy I had close-enough colors!
Thanks for stopping by!
Thank you so very much Altenew for the win!
Your Poppy colors are spot on Michele and what a lovely, lovely flower!! Your CAS design is absolute perfection and I'm thinking I'll absolutely have to use that pinpoint die when we can get together again...it's GORGEOUS!! Loving those curvy rectangles too! BEAUTIFUL card Michele...LOVE it!! :0)
Looks like you're burning up the internet with your creative skills. Another gorgeous card to add to your fabulous collection. For a girl who claims to like calmer colors your certainly know how to amaze us with vibrancy when you want to. Those frames do alot to showcase that poppy.
Hey you! This card is spectacular! I love everything about it from the the gorgeous floral die cut to that debossing texture and finally the rounded rectangle die cuts. This one just says "Spring!"
Hope you are well and that you are staying safe - it looks like there was just a bit of the white stuff in your area recently - wishing for spring here!
Hugs - Rachelle : )
Where are the smelling salts? I feinted a little when I saw this. It is so gorgeous... I have no words. I love those little frames and the way you placed them... the debossing framed by the larger one, the colors, that flower. ker-plunk.
Oh my word!! This is GORGEOUS!! I never would have thought of layering those colors like that with the flower. I am in AWE!

You have nailed the colors in the inspiration photo perfectly. This flower is amazing, the debossed background is perfect and I love how you took your rounded corners dies and made these frames. Very cool look and one stunning card! Hugs, Brenda
I can't be on the computer too long, so I had some catching up to do. You have completely filled me up with all your brilliant designs and impeccable execution, M! I had to stop on this one because it keeps drawing me back again and again! If I were a magazine, this would be on the cover!! Hugs, D
