Thursday Thoughts

A card for CAS(E) this Sketch today.  The rectangular lattice on the sketch had me searching through my dies as I knew it reminded me of one of them.  So that was the starting point for my card.  Once the fence was cut I knew I wanted to put a stamp behind and went for my poppy field stamp from Inkylicious. 

All my flower stamps and punches seemed too big and clumsy for the corner elements, so I chose butterflies instead and stamped some tiny ones around the poppies too. A little bit of twine to ground the image and a fairly open sentiment and I was done.

Stamp: Inkylicious, Poppy Lea; Clearly Besotted, sentiment from Take Good Care
Inks: Memento, rich cocoa, rose bud
Promarkers: Poppy
Punch: Martha Stewart
Die: Spellbinders d-lite
Embellishments: twine & Glassy Accents

Just want to share this photo before I go.  I took it on a walk late yesterday afternoon just as the sun was setting and there was a mist rising from the field.  We've been having some beautiful skies here in Lincolnshire recently.

Thanks for dropping by today.
