Poppy Seed challenge 1

Hi everyone! I've been sick with another sinus infection this weekend, but I managed to make a card for a new challenge. Lisa Johnson of Poppy Paperie fame, introduced this challenge which has three "seeds" to follow: use flowers, gems and the color yellow.



While laying in bed I was daydreaming about this card, so once I mustered the energy, I created it. It didn't turn out exactly as I had envisioned, but it's still pretty.



I stamped the Violets image in Lemon Tart onto Vintage Cream cardstock and added gems to the centers. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark and heat set with clear embossing powder.



Thanks for stopping by!
Melissa

"Thanks for everything" (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Year of Flowers: Violet
Ink: Lemon Tart and Versamark, Antique Linen (Ranger)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Lemon Tart and Enchanted Evening
Other: EE Satin ribbon, heat tool, sponge, Copic Marker, Clear Detail EP (Filigree)
