Red poppy

Goodmorning! Boy, has it been busy around here! I got to squeeze in this card late last night before bed time:

thinking of you poppy4

I purposely left the stems on the poppy uncolored.....and wanted that speckly look in the background as well.

Keeping this post extremely short so I can get back to stamping! Little one was off to school again this morning, it was tough getting him out the door after a 2 week vacation, but he was all happy and ready to go after I mentioned his teacher's name....he LOVES to hear her name and says it all the time at home! ;)

See you soon with more cards.

Stamps: Hero Arts.

Prima pearls.

Paper Source cardstock.
