You may have hopped here from Nikki's blog or you may be starting the hop here but regardless I know you will be flawed by the Design Team's creations for our annual hop.

I wanted to use a new set for my project so I chose the Painted Poppies from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue. With a thick Whisper White card base I popped in a Purple Posy layer to set off the watercoloured background. Not having the matching DSP yet this gave me a chance to play with colours for my poppies and I ended up using Blackberry Bliss and Blushing Bride, with Granny Apple Green for the leaves. I've set the colours off with some gold accents and the gorgeous Flax ribbon.
