We are bringing our week long inspiration celebration to an end by creating projects inspired by a famous piece of art. For my piece, I picked Vincent van Gogh's Vase with Poppies. I love the vibrant colors in this piece and I LOVE the way he captures the delicate way poppies wilt to the side.

To create my card today, I reached for one of my all time favourite stamp sets, Pretty Poppies.

I stamped the poppies in Electric Red Premium Dye Ink, and the stems in Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink. The centre of the flowers were created by using a Black Copic  Multiliner marker. 

The sentiment is from the Grand Greetings stamp set, I stamped it on a piece of Kraft card stock that was die-cut with the fabulous Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-namics. The background was stamped with the Burlap Background stamp in Kraft Premium Dye Ink on Kraft card stock

On the inside of the card, I stamped a single poppy and a I added a hint of burlap. I left lots of room for a special message.
