Beautiful Poppies!

I'm just thrilled to bring you five new guest designers over the course of the summer!   Misti is the first and I'm sure that we will all be inspired by her art.  Please give her a warm welcome, won't you?

Hi, my name is Misti Oblander & I am so excited to be one of the guest designers for June & July!!! When I got Beverly's email inviting me to be a guest, I was in the middle of an archery shop & let's just say, the guys that were standing close to me, just didn't get my excitement!!  LOL

I've been married to my husband, Kevin, for 17 years.  We have 2 boys, 11 & 9, whom we homeschool.  They are competitive archers & are super active with that.  I enjoy card making & seem to be a bit of challenge junkie!   My blog is A Card A Day.  Thank you, Beverly for the warm welcome.  I am so excited to be a guest for June & July.   I live in the far southwestern part of OK, 17 miles from the TX border.  

For this card, I pulled out the JustRite Poppies Labels Twenty Nine set and my Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I used Peeled PaintBarn Door & Black Soot with the Tim Holtz Water Brush. I love that the Tim Holtz markers match his distress inks.  After watercoloring the image to my liking, I used the Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Nine to cut out my image.   The white panel in the back was created using the Scor-Buddy to give it a some texture.   A little bit of Black polka dot sheer ribbon & a few Baby Rhinestones in the corners complete this card. 

I spread my stuff over every inch of my desk, and I call that a successful afternoon!  I can't wait to come back & share my next project with you.  
Thanks, Misti, for such an elegant card!
