Can't believe that I'm back again already.  I have been busy today, but had a fun evening out with a girlfriend. We went to dinner and then went to see Sherlock Holmes, His Last Adventure on stage.  It's put on by a small repertoire company, and it was really very entertaining  We both enjoyed the evening very much.

One thing I did today was make this card for the Gingerloft Challenge.
Since the card is basically white, I put it on a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock so you could see the white.  The challenge this time was to use embossing wet or dry.  I chose to use this fabulous embossing/cutting folder from Marianne Designs.  It cuts the holes in the cardstock as it embosses.  It is kind of hard to see the embossing on the white.  I put a piece of Stampin Up Poppy Parade behind the front of the card for it to show through the cutouts. 

The image is "Poppies" from Gingerloft Digi Store which I printed on Xpress It Blending Card and cut out with my Nestabilities Oval Die and matted it on a piece of SU Poppy Parade cut using another Nestabilities Oval Die.  The Sentiment is from Stampin Up Fancy Flexible Phrases and the ribbon is from my stash.

The image was colored using my Copic markers:  B0000; C7, C10; G21, G24, G29; R08, R27, R46; YR15.

I am submitting my card for these challenges:

  1. This is so pretty Maggie... I like the contrast of the little splashes of red on the white... very striking.
    Aren't those Marianne folders great to work with? I have one and think it's so pretty and elegant looking.

  2. Beautiful! Love all the white on this.

  3. This is so pretty! I love the poppy and the way you did the cutting. I love how the red peeks through. It is so elegant. My hubby plays Watson when his company does Sherlock Holmes so it is a favorite of ours. We are loving the BBC version out now.

  4. Marvelous, Maggie! Perfect coloring on the poppies. Love the red/white ribbon with it.

  5. Very elegant embossing! That red really makes the whole card fantastic!

  6. Maggie this is fabulous - love the elegance of the cut/embossing and the red flower on the white.

  7. I love Poppies- your card is just beautiful Maggie! Love the embossing all in white- so elegant. Hope you had a great time at Sherlock!

  8. Beautiful elegant card, lovely image and the embossing sets off the colours wonderfully.
