Pieced Poppies

Here is a card I made for Joan's Garden Challenge - they want us to:
  • Use a flower as your focal point
  • Use Black and red
  • Use an embossing folder
  • Have either a stamped or die cut border at the bottom 
and here is my card:

I used Hero Art Delicate Blossoms stamp, paper pieced them using  Bo Bunny Double Dot paper.
The lace started out as red, but I colored it with Black Copic - the red still shows through here and there, but I think it ads interest to it :)

I'm also entering it into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Love to Create - punches & dies

Your paper pieced poppies are a great detail on this card. Clever to colour the lace with Black Copic, too. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges.
