Soft Appealing Poppies - A Triple Challenge

I made this card for the SCS Color Challenge CC276 (Soft Suede, Apricot Appeal and Almost Amethyst) and used Mercy's MTSC79.  My friend Liz told me this also qualifies for Speedy the Cat challenge - to use embossing.  I had stamped off the Hero Arts Poppies image when I was stamping with my BSFs in Iowa last week.  I colored the poppies with Prismacolor pencils and Baby Oil.
Thanks for coming by!
Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts; Ink - Versafine Sepia; Paper - PaperTrey, Bazzill, SU! Soft Suede; Misc - Prismacolor Pencils, Baby Oil, Blending Stumps, MS Butterfly punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, half back pearls, Glue Dots, foam square adhesive.

  1. Let me be the first to say that is a beautiful card. I debated about purchasing that stamp. I may have to.

  2. I have picked up this stamp 3-4 times and always put it down, but your making me rethink my decision. I do have the larger square one of this version - maybe that's why! I do love these poppies though!!
    Nice job :)

  6. Clean and simple. I like the brightness of the poppies and butterflies as much as the embossing on the background.
