Hi Artsy Friends,

Hope you like this card. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day!

Challenges to Enter




  1. Yet another stunning beauty from you, Helen. This is gorgeous. Love the white die cut on white...it's such a nice effect to add a bit of texture without the colour. Your watercolouring turned out great. The poppies are beautifully coloured. Those PB solid stamps aren't always easy to work with - I have a few that don't get used anywhere as often as I'd like them to be :-(
    Happy Easter and thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us at Try it on Tuesday.
