Poppy Seed Challenge #2

9:06 PM

Hello everyone, I have a card to share for Lisa Johnson's second Poppy Seed Challenge! This time the three "poppy seeds" consist of using buttons, polka dots and the color light green.

As we don't celebrate St. Patty's, I thought I'd take the opportunity to make an early baby / toddler card. Two of my colleagues are expecting and it's my cousin's little one's birthday soon. You can see I left out the sentiment for now - so what ever "event" comes first it will be a baby or 2nd birthday card.

The idea for putting those half circles around the circle panel came from a card I saw a week ago at a local shop. You can see their beautiful original card(s) here. Oh, and did you see the birdies eye? I found some tiny black beads that were perfect for just that, also they fit into some of the button holes so you don't even have to fiddle around to glue it down.

So, that's it from me today. Thanks for stopping by!
