Yellow Poppies

Lisa Johnson started a new challenge series on her blog.  You can find this week's challenge here.  As you can see she gave us three "seeds" to use on our cards:
  1. Crystals
  2. A flower stamp
  3. Light Yellow
This was such a fun challenge!  I used one of my very favorite stamp sets from Papertrey -- Remember.  This is a must have set.  I LOVE the poppy images Lisa included.  I also used FTL #80 from the clean & simple blog for my layout.



The solid part of the flowers are stamped with Buttercup ink (CTMH).  The outlines are stamped in Orange Zest.  I used Ripe Avocado for the stems and leaf outlines and Spring Moss for the solid leaves.  This sheet of patterned paper from Polka Dot Parade coordinated perfectly with my stamped image.  I finished it off with Orange Zest twill tape ribbon and rhinestones.

Paper:  ripe avocado, white, lemon tart, polka dot parade pp
Ink:  Buttercup (CTMH), orange zest, ripe avocado, spring moss

Wow what a beautiful card Sara! That flower is gorgeous, really eye catching. I just love how you've used the rhinestones as your border. Im gonna have to try that some time.

I really admire your style Sara - clean, bright loveliness. Not like me where Im always trying to distress something…lol!

Great layout! I love all the white on your card - it gives it such a fresh look. Good job on this challenge.

Sara, this is gorgeous!!! I love what you have done with this set and the challenge! I also remember your red, black and white one from when you originally made it, IT IS STUNNING! Congrats on your blog too! I can't figure out how to subscribe (computer challenged, lol!) Also, I didn't realize you were from HI. We were stationed on Oahu for 2 1/2 years and I absolutely LOVED it! It truly is like living in paradise!:)
