MFT September Release Countdown--Day 5

Are you ready? It's countdown time to My Favorite Things September Release!
All new products will go on sale September 1st at 10pm EST.

Today I'm sharing floral goodness starting with Delicate Pretty Poppies, an outline
version of the previously released Pretty Poppies both designed by Lisa Johnson.

The new Distressed Stripes Background was stamped on a piece of Grout Gray
card stock with the same color ink for a tone on tone look. The piece was die cut
with the new Die-namics Stitched Cover Up Vertical Companion, a fun way to frame
your designs and sentiments. Dimensional adhesive was used to adhere the frame
to a Grout Gray card base.

Three poppies and leaves were colored with Copic markers and fussy cut,
then adhered in the smaller opening. The sentiment from Thanks So Very Much
fit perfectly in the larger opening on the bottom. 

My second card features the new Etched Flower Background. I white embossed
the image on watercolor card stock and used a dauber and dye inks to color in
the entire background. The panel was then cut with the rectangle element

The sentiment was gold embossed on a strip of vellum and wrapped around the panel.
The card was finished off with some shiny gold sequins.

Stop by today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for links to participating
designers, and leave a comment there to be eligible for a $75 gift voucher to shop
