Field of Poppies for Pals Paper Arts

Hello again!  I have a card to share with you today that I made for this week's sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts.    

This great sketch was perfect to showcase one of my favorite pieces of the new Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper stack in the background.  I just love the look of it, like a field of poppies spread before you.  Of course I had to add the requisite butterfly!

In concept this should have been a very easy card to make, but boy did I struggle with what banners to use, whether to use card stock, ribbon or twine for the horizontal piece and how to display a sentiment.  I tried out a lot of different things but in the end I liked the vellum banners best, and used the sentiment from Wetlands in an oval directly over the banners.

Thanks so much for the visit today!  I hope the rest of your weekend goes well.  Prayers and well wishes to those of you in the areas of the US suffering through severe weather.  Please stay safe!

The vellum definitely made gorgeous banners over the DSP. The butterfly looks so sweet on the field of flowers too. Thanks so much for sharing us at the Pals Paper Arts this week!
