Poppy Sympathy

There are two types of cards that are hard for me:  sympathy cards and masculine cards.  But when I saw the Memory Box Row of Poppies, I thought it would make a perfect sympathy card.  I started with a stitched rectangle die cut from MFT Blueprint 13.  I used the Memory Box Textured Mesh stencil and sponged some Broken China over just a small section of the layer.  I die-cut the row of poppies out of watercolor paper and used my Copics to color them.  I added a PoppyStamps Delaney Butterfly cut from gold SB Precious Metals Craft Foil.  I added a double bow made with Bow-Easy, a sympathy tag from ODBD Mini Tag Sentiments and Dies as well as a gold cross.

The card was still a little flat to me so I die cut and colored some of the poppies and popped up three of the blooms with small Joy! foam pads.  A little dimension can go a long way!
