Flourishes Free for All Friday Blog Hop – Red as Poppies

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Flourishes Friday Blog Hop. If you have arrived from Linda’s blog, then you are in the right place. If not, please head on over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

I hope all of you in the United States had a wonderful Thanksgiving, yesterday, with your loved ones.

This week, I have challenged the team to make their projects Red as Poppies in honour of Veteran’s Day or Remembrance Day, here, in Canada, which we observed two weeks ago.

Let’s take a look at what I came up with:


I used the poppy image from Year in Flowers 2. This image was coloured using Copic Markers and then cut-out using Flourishes Tailor-Made Classic Hourglass Die Set (a personal favourite). The sentiment is from Bushel of Thanks. This was then mounted over some adorable polkadot patterned paper by October Afternoon. Next, I matted this in black and attached it to my card base. Finally, I embellished my card very simply using some black enamel dots and some metallic tinsel cord (another favourite).

Here is the blog hop list:

  1. I love your style and this is such a Lovely Poppie here.
    The gold twin you used is just enough to give it a little shine but not over power it at the same time.
    Where did you get this Lovely gold twine if you don’t mind me asking?
