and they called it Poppy Luuuuuuuuuve

hee hee, hello blogland, do you remember that song by the
gorgeous Donny Osmond? ooooh well, he was my first love
don't you know! :0) I remember watching him on TOTP
daydreaming, watching him in his white flat cap knitted hat
walking through the park, aaahhhhh, does anyone else
remember that video? think that was the first single I ever
bought too! Oops showing my age now!!
Well I thought that title was pretty apt as I was asked to do
a Valentines card for my friends young son whose girlfriend
is called?....... yes you guessed it, Poppy! so thought I would
use these beautiful flowers from the Floral Cd over at
Katy Sue Designs, and make a heart shape from them.
I have also used their beautiful Ultra fine flower soft in
Black to accent the centre of the flowers, it really does
bring these flowers to life. I made a sort of triangle shaped
card??? don't ask me how it turned out that way but the
fold went a bit wrong and well, I think it is right???

Here it is from another angle, sentiment was done on PC
and the backing papers are also from the same CD.

and here it is flat, I cut out each poppy and layered them then
used some card at the back just to strengthen the flowers that
are away from the card.
Well I will leave you young ones to google that song and
hopefully happy memories for us....well....a bit olderies!
TFL Happy Crafting, Sue xx
