The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #44 - Poppies

Hi there,
Today's post is for this weeks challenge at The Paper Players.  The sketch has a bit of a twist to it with the main image split with a diagonal piece covering it. I would usually put this strip behind the image as I built the card.  So I designed a fairly simple card masking the poppies as I stamped. I wanted to add more embellishments..... but decided not to.  I always think Black, White and Red make a stunning card and I love these colours together.
This card was awarded the Cut Above Badge from The Paper Players.

Stamps: Flourishes Poppy Patch Set #35, S/U's Teeny Tiny Sentiments, En Francais BG
Card: Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink:  Stazon Black, Real Red, Mellow Moss
Embellishments: White Satin Ribbon
Tools: Scallop Edge Punch, Curly Label Punch, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape
Thanks for calling in today.
