    I have a bathroom decorated in tropical fish, all bright yellow and navy blue. I'm making this for there.

    Thank you so much, amma!! I sure appreciate your kind compliments and everyone else's here on the board! So glad to hear you like the embellishments!! I thought I overdid it, but it just shows my love for the fishies so I'll leave them on. The rhinestones had peel-off backs but I just glued it all on as they are just so tiny to handle! What a super compliment on the poppies! I didn't think they turned out so well, but glad they are enjoyed! I used a premade outer border from gathering scraps into strips and just threw it on the design wall and it matched good! The other 3 sides of the border I opened up and slipped in some coordinating strips of the poppies to make it look authentic! It worked!! Thank you, amma, for your super comments!!! I appreciate it!! :-D :-D :-D ;-) ;-) :thumbup:

    Thank you, G, for your nice comments!! Just wanted to tell you that the poppies' border was premade from months earlier of gathering scraps into strings for future use. Had no idea it would look so good until I tried putting the two together! A few of the borders I opened up at intervals and slipped in some coordinating fabrics of the poppies to make it look authentic!! How's that for clearing out the scrap bag?? LOL.

    :D :D
