Elements of Poppy

Ok, here's the other card I promised you.


I stamped another scrap of Vanilla with the Elements of Style stamp in So Saffron ink and used the Simple Flower Embosslit with the BIG GUY.  For the center I used some of the embossed So Saffron scrap and punched a 1/2" circle.  The stem is from the Three Little Words set.

The colors are again from the Color Dare Challenge 92.  This layout is much more pleasing to me.  The previous card has a bit more Poppy than is soothing.

The layout is from the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge 186.  I really love this layout and the torn edge adds some extra texture.  I rarely think about tearing an edge.

Instead of a button, I  made a little bow with some So Saffron ribbon and Linen Thread.  I think it will go through the mail with no problem.

Ink:  So Saffron, Soft Suede
Paper:  So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Poppy Parade

Bonnie
