Poppies in Paris- Two Challenges in One Card!

Hi Stampers!
I created this card using the colors from this week’s Pals Paper Arts PPA92 Challenge (see http://www.palspaperarts.com) and the CCMC149 sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary (see http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com).  You will need to check out their sites to see all of the amazing creations that both Design Teams have created along with all of the other fabulous entries!   

I must admit that I have not used Poppy Parade as often as the other In-Colors but I do love the drama that it creates when paired with the other colors in this challenge:-)

To create this card:
Heat emboss the images and sentiment using the Embossing Buddy to de-static the cardstock and Black EP.
Use the Big Shot to cut the tag from the Two Tags Die and emboss the Poppy Parade panel using the Framed Tulips EF.

Color the flowers using SU! Markers in Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade.  

Assemble the panels and finish off with pearls and satin ribbon.

Stamp Sets: Artistic Etchings, Fabulous Florets, Fresh Cuts
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Basic Black, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz DSP, Peach Parfait DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Two Tags Die, Framed Tulips EF, Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, Black EP, Pearls, Small and Medium Oval Punch, 5/8” Black Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for visiting- I hope all of you have a terrific week!
