Poppy Field - SSS55

Happy Mother's Day

I know I'm a day early, but this is just in case I don't get a chance to post anything tomorrow.
I hope you all have a wonderful and Blessed Mother's Day tomorrow.

My inspiration today came form a sketch Challenge over at The Sweet Stop. If you like sketches then you will love the ones there.

I used the new Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Stamp called "Poppies" again. Since the image area on this sketch was bigger then most times, I thought I would try to make it resemb;e a poppy field. The original image is three poppies and a bud.
I printed the image out numerous times and even did it as a mirror image.
They were colored with Copic Markers then many of the flowers were cut out and mounted with foam tape for a 3D affect. The centers of the flowers has black glitter.

I thought it really needed some butterflies too.
The designer paper is from a new Paper Pack from Close to mY Heart called Cherry-O. And the Big button is from the new Tulip Mini Medlies.

The hand stitching was done with matching embroidery floss.
