Poppy Seed Challenge and SSSC

Happy Monday friends! Hope your day has been great. Mine has been a typical 'manic Monday'. I was happy to get a bit of work done today, I'll share that with you tomorrow, but I also made time to plaly along with Lisa Johnson's Poppy Seed Challenge. I've been a fan of Lisa's for a long time and it was so fun to meet her at CHA! She was doing a card make and take at the Marvy Uchida booth and I had a good time getting to know her a little bit. She is super kind and as you all know VERY talented...so I'm excited for her new challenges! This first challenge had 3 "seeds" 1. crystals 2. flower stamp 3. light yellow. I enjoyed the challenge! I'm really stuck on yellow lately so it was fun!
I decided to use one of the sets Lisa has designed for Papertrey Ink, as my flower stamp. The stamp set is called Wishing You. It is a great set that I've used a lot...love it! So, I used So Saffron, Real Red, and New Leaf for my colors today. The layout for my card came from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #58. It sure is fun to have so many talented people sharing their ideas for fun challenges! Isn't it!?
I stamped my white cardstock with a delicious polka dot stamp from Polka Dot Basics II. I used So Saffron Ink to make these yummy polkas! Next I stamped my stems on another piece of white cardstock with New Leaf ink. I added my tulips with So Saffron and Real Red ink. I used my curly label punch to make the three focal points and then mounted the one with the red tulip on some red cardstock. I added dimensional adhesive to the center image.

I used some New Leaf cardstock and my wide scallop border punch to make a nice little border and then added a strip of New Leaf ribbon. I stamped my sentiment with New Leaf Ink and then used my wide oval punch to punch it out. I mounted the sentiment on a scallop oval made from So Saffron.

I added a single little red rhinestone/crystal, to the base of the red tulip and that was my third requirement for the challenge, so I was done!
Thanks a bundle for stopping by friends! I hope you have a great week! See you tomorrow with some fun from LAD and Cosmo Cricket! Have a good one and make it great!
