Gingham and Poppies . . .

Happy Friday Everyone! 
Are you all ready for Easter weekend?
WOW!  It's hard to believe we are about to celebrate Easter already!  
Time flies when you're having fun!  LOL
Today I have a new inspiration sample for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog to share.

What fun I had creating this card!
When I received this beautiful Wild Rose Studio 'Dancing Poppies' #WRS021 die, I wasn't real sure what I wanted to do with it so I simply die cut a sample from white card stock and started laying it down on different design papers, etc. just to get some ideas.  And since my real poppies are more of a RED color, I die cut another panel from red card stock.  
I laid them both on the worktable while I looked for some different design papers and when I turned around it hit me that I liked the red flowers in behind the white flowers ... so THAT was the beginning of this creation.

Poppies remind me of being out in the country so I thought this panel of red/white gingham was appropriate.  Next I needed a panel to really make things POP so I grabbed the beautiful Sue Wilson 'Frames & Tags - Hannah' die and cut a panel from black card stock to use as the background for my poppies.  PERFECT!  
Now all I needed was a touch of sparkle which I achieve with Diamond Stickles and a sentiment.  The Cheery Lynn Designs 'Happy' #B226 and 'Birthday' #B231 worked perfectly!!
