Pleasant Poppies

Did you know that poppies can be almost any color?  In fact at the Rhododendron Garden in Federal Way, WA you can see blue poppies!  I missed them this year but will be sure to see them next year.  Even knowing that there are many colors of poppies I still  think of them as orangey-reddish, don't you?

Today i bring you Pleasant Poppies in Pretty in Pink and Raspberry Ripple.  Pleasant Poppies is a big background stamp.  In the new Stampin' Up! catalog you can get selected background stamps in the clear-mount option!  I think that is a winner!  Not only is it less expensive but I have a use for block size F!

Ink: Black Stazon, Pretty in Pink, Raspberry Ripple, Old Olive, Sahara Sand
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple,  Midnight Muse In Color DSP stack, Watercolor paper
Extras: Aqua Painter, Vintage Faceted buttons, Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin ribbon

I wanted you to see the gorgeous faceted buttons.  These are beautiful and really add  some elegance to your projects.  Also the stitched satin ribbon is just so easy to work with and just plain yummy!  I cheated here and tied a bow with the Raspberry Ripple ribbon and attached it to the button with a glue dot.

I stamped the Pleasant Poppies on the inside of the card.  It looks wonderful as a focal point and also as a background.  

It is a beaurtiful day and after i go for my walk i will be in the craft room getting ready for a weekend of stamping fun!  I might have to take my paper cutter out to the back porch so I can enjoy the sunshine while I cut paper.  Have a creative day and be sure to tell me about it!
