Milton with a Poppy

Hello, hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.  Sorry I have not been around for a while, my laptop dies and that is usually where I post from, waiting for my new one to arrive on Tuesday can't wait.

Today I have this cute card to share with you, using a Wild Rose Studio stamp.  Last month I was so surprised and excited to find out that I won a $50 gift certificate to Marker Pop from the giveaway Melissa Made was having on her blog.  Thanks you Melissa I love my goodies.

So I took this cute image called Milton with Poppy and I colored him with my Copic markers.  It had been hile since I had my Copics out so it felt good to color again.  I stamped the poppy twice and cut out the second one, colored it and covered it with Liquid Glass, then pop dotted it on top of the other.  I cut around the image with a Spelldinder and had to cut off part of the flower but that was ok since I was going to place that second flower on top.  The papers I used for this card are from a K&Company paper pack. 
This card was created following the sketch this week at CPS Sketches.  Once I started working with this sketch I realized that I really liked and think I will save it for future use.  I cut a couple of circles using my Spellbinders, one from white and the other the green pattern paper, then just cut them in half and placed them at the top and the bottom of the card.  I actually flipped the sketch from the way it was posted on CPS Sketches.  If you are fast you can play along this week with this sketch because the deadline to post is June 3rd at 5:00 pm CST or watch for the new sketch to come out next week.
I will add a sentiment at a later time when I decide how I will use this card, it would be great as a get well, hello, birthday etc.

Thanks so much for stopping by and look forward to hear what you have to say about this cute little card.
