I started with an 8"x 8" white card base and added a black matt.  I then embossed the background with another piece of white card. I used 3 distress inks to create the sunbeam.  The sentiment was stamped on white card with black ink and I die cut this and highlighted it whilst it was still in the die with the blue ink I'd previously used.  I added foam tape to the sentiment to add dimension and to finish I added 4 blue pearl brads to each corner

This is my third and final entry to:


I matted and layered a piece of red mirri card and pearlised card (by Crafter's Companion) onto my base 5"x7" pearlised card. I then embossed another piece of pearlised card using an embossing folder by Crafter's Companion and cut a strip to matt onto a piece of red mirri card. 
I cut and embossed a poppy die (Creative Expressions) twice but kept only the flower head from one.  I also cut and embossed the filigree vase also from Creative Expressions.  I used a small piece of pale blue card behind the vase to give the impression of  it being filled with water, moulded the vase slightly before I adhered it over the blue card.  I then coloured the leaves and stem of the flower and covered the flower head with Ranger's Glossy Accents and repeated this to the other flower head and  put it to one side to dry overnight.  The sentiment is stamped in Adirondack 'Pitch Black'.  When the flower heads were completely dry I attached the single head to the main flower, added a small black gem to the centre and tweaked the flower to give it a natural look and added the embossed strip to the side of the card
