Hero Arts Shaped Card

It is my day at A2Z Scrapbooking and our challenge this month is Shaped Cards.

I've used my favourite Layering Poppies stamp set to make my card. My card base is made with by die cutting two Spellbinders dies and glued them together at the top.   I trimmed a smidgen off the bottom curve on the back to allow the card to stand up.    I used some Patterned paper for my inner panel.   On a separate piece of card stock I stamped the poppy in Hero Arts inks - Soft Cantaloupe and Punch Chalk (discontinued) and Distress Ink - Aged Mahogany.  The stem is in Emerald  Green.   I used the matching dies to cut out the Poppy.

I did have a little mishap when stamping the sentiment.... as I went to pull the sentiment off the backing sheet (it was the first time I used this sentiment) and I tore it!
 

With much butting and wiggling, to say the least, I managed to get the sentiment stamped.
