SU Pleasant Poppies with Pearls

When I saw Freshly Made Sketches # 79, I knew I wanted to use the SU Delicate Doilies Sizzlet  my friend, Wendy, gave to me. I played tic-tac-toe with Jaydee of The Paper Players #139  to come up with this card:


I did not put a sentiment on yet because it just looked so pristine without one on the front- so I will add it to the inside when I am ready to use the card.
Card Recipe:
STAMPS: SU Pleasant Poppies
INK: SU Basic Black, SU Barely Banana marker, SU Certainly Celery marker
PAPER: SU Basic Black, SU Barely Banana, SU Whisper White
ACCESSORIES: SU Pearls, random matching ribbon
TOOLS: SU Needlepoint Border EF, SU Delicate Doilies Sizzlet, SU Stripes EF

Since this card is clean and simple due to its monochromatic color, and I used the Embossed scallop below the ribbon- I am linking it to the Lucky Dip over at Less is More challenge blog.


  1. This is so beautiful, Cindy! I love the colors that you chose, you’re coloring is so beautiful, and the details are spot-on! Really wonderful card. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Oh, Cindy. This is so soft and pretty and makes my little CAS heart happy! The black really pops the flowers and I love all the dry embossing. So glad you joined my challenge at the Paper Players this week

  3. How beautiful, Cindy! I love the detail around the center circle – a great way to incorporate both sketches. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week.

  4. Beautiful, Cindy! I agree…it looks gorgeous without a sentiment. I love the needlepoint border with the ribbon above it. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  5. This is really elegant, I love the embossed scallops!
    Thanks so much
