Pile it On Challenge (Mostly Orange)

I made this card as part of the Pile it On Design Team. I was inspired by the CAS challenge on Splitcoast which was to use inspiration from select paintings. This painting caught my eye!I used my Penny Black stamp to create the Poppies and used my SU! Markers and a blender pen to colour them. I then outlined the poppies in Going Gray (SU!). The challenges I used for this card were:

1. Pile it On (Mostly Orange)
2. CAS (Splitcoast Stampers)
3. 2 Red Bananas (Sketch)
4. Cuttlebug Challenge (same Sketch but using Cuttlebug background)

The sentiment I chose was "You Make Me Smile" which is one of my fav sentiment stamps from Penny Black and these bright colours did make me smile.

Thanks for stopping by! Try out the Pile it On Challenge this week!
