Simon Says: Thinking of You!

 Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Thinking of You and we are featuring Birch Press Design products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!   

It's Remembrance Day in Canada on November 11, and I felt like turning this beautiful Birch Press Cosmos Die into a Poppy to underline the importance of the week leading to the day. I am so happy with the way this turned out, aside from Christmas I don't use that much red on my cards.

I die (die has two different petals) cut my flower (twice, which gave me four different petal pieces) and added some Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to give the petals some depth.  I then took my favourite Whimsy Stamps double rectangle die (I use this die all the time) and die cut it from Black Glitter card stock.

I then took this Hero Arts stencil and ink blended a select area on my background panel in red. I glued my black frame to the panel and then my flower using foam tape.

For my sentiments, I used Spellbinders Wonderful Script Sentiments for the You die and the Everyday Sentiments 2 Glimmer Plates. To finish off, some Pink Fresh Studio Ruby gems.
