Sweet Stamps- Double Side Step Card

Our Monthly Technique challenge at Sweet Stamps from 8/15-9/14 is a double side step card.This is the first time I have done this- and I found the measurements HERE. Thanks for sharing Patricia!


 I tried to stay away from my usual Pink/Blue combination : )  I used Bo Bunny DP- I happened upon a post where a gentleman was talking about Flander's Field.  We have a relative buried there, so I thought I would go with a 'Poppy' theme for my card today.

The beautiful Poppy image was colored with Copics:
'0' , C1, C2, C3, C5, C7
Y21, Y23, YR04, YR15, YR16, YR18, E19
G43, G46
Silver rhinestones were colored with YR18
Wink of Stella was added to the centers of the flowers and to the tiny yellow blossoms.

Products I used from the Sweet Stamps Store:



We have a weekly challenge and a monthly technique challenge.  Our winners are chosen by Random.org- and if you use a Sweet Stamps image, your entry will count x's 2! Please stop by the Sweet Stamps Challenge Blog to see what the other designers have created!
