Poppy Thank You - Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies

 I was able to find a bit of time to be in the stamp room yesterday and was actually able to make a card.  I didn't have much mojo over the weekend so instead I spent some time cleaning up and doing some stamp room housekeeping that tends to get overlooked in favor of stamping.  The Just Add ink challenge was just the ticket to get inky.  The color challenge is Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Rococo Rose. 

  I was able to pull in a lot of Rococo Rose products that tend to get overlooked in my stamping as pink isn't one of my go to colors.  I like the simplicity of the stamping but with interest from the textures and patterns on the rest of the card.

  The card base is Rococo Rose with a layer of Rococo Rose In Color DSP in the scripty pattern.  I embossed a panel of Smoky Slate with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder and added a little bit of the Scalloped Linen ribbon to the edge.  I actually cut off one side of the scallops to use so just the little bit of color peeks out.

  The tag is cut from the Bonanza dies and the poppy is stamped in Basic Gray and colored with the Rococo Rose Stampin' Blends.  I popped the tag on dimensionals and added a shimmer Basic Gray knot to the top.

  The sentiment is from the Sale-a-Bration set Thoughtful Blooms and is embossed on Basic Gray cardstock.  I die cut it with the Stitched So Sweetly dies, added some faceted gems to the side and popped it up on dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
