Hoping you...

Hasn't the weather been crazy the past week? We had a snow storm Friday, a bit of flurries Saturday and Sunday and today it was sunny. Tomorrow it is going to be in the high 40's...crazy!
I can not believe all the severe weather to the south of me. I pray that those of you that were in the areas that had tornado's are all safe.
I had to start over twice on the card I am sharing today. I had my first image of the poppies all colored and completely ruined them when I tried to be creative with sponging ink around them. That attempted ended up in the garbage! My second attempt is better - I stayed away from the sponge dauber and ink ;-)
The poppies are from Sweet N Sassy's Poppies and Greetings Stamp set.  I colored them with copics - R17,30,32/RV42/YG01,03,63/R23,25,40,41. 
I cut out the strip of grass using My Favorite Things Fresh Cut Grass Die. I cut the strip in half so I could layer it and used Memento's Bamboo Leaves ink pad for shading. After I glued the grass down I wasn't sure I like it but since I had already ruined the first image I colored I wasn't about to start over again!

Card Supplies:
Stamps: SNSS - Poppies and Greetings
Ink: Memento, SU
Paper: GKD, SU, MME
Other: Copics, Button, Twine, Pearls, MFT File Tab & Fresh Cut Grass dies

Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for stopping by!
