Friends Are Like Flowers

Good Morning!

Today I am so happy to be Guest Designing over at the CropStop Blog.  
This site is fairly new to me but it has the most wonderful Challenges and an amazing CropStop Store where you can find all of your paper crafting needs. 
Dies, Embossing Folders, Storage, Punches and Paper, just to name a few. 
Go on over and check them out, you'll be glad you did!

I am sharing a little interactive card with you today.  I was inspired by Dawn's Stamping Thoughts, her Hubby designed this particular sketch.

Top Folding A-2 Card.
Black card base, 4 1/4 x 11 inches, scored at 5 1/2 inches.
White layering weight card stock, 4 1/8 inches x 5 1/4 inches
Polka Dot Designer Paper, 3 7/8 inches x 5 1/8 inches.

Using the Memory Box Sideshow Tickets I die cut once from Black card stock and Floral Designer Paper.  Adhered with Scotch ATG Adhesive.

I added  Fun Foam to the back of my panel using Scor Tape.  This creates a nice 'channel' for my smaller Memory Box Sideshow Tickets which is cut in White card stock, layered with a Red Memory Box Row Of Poppies cropped die cut.  Ribbon added for the pull tab.
