CAS poppies

Yes, more CAS poppy cards.

My 1st post shared a pair of CAS "for someone special" poppy cards and all about our latest challenge Challenge #121 - Clean and Simple (CAS) at the Crafty Gals Corner

Full details can be found on my first "for someone special" post HERE.


This pair of 5"x7" cards will be sent "with our deepest sympathy".

I combined two of my favourite fonts in Adobe PhotoShop (Bookman Old Style and Janda Celebration Script) to create the sentiment.

The poppies are digital stamps (details below), coloured with Copic markers.

You might be thinking, "why did she add the sequins?"
OK ... I confess ... I had an inky oops that didn't want to move.

Which one do you prefer?
Should I add sequins to the other cards?
