Thinking of You Poppies

Hello, it's Bridget here today with a card I mading using a fabulous Sweet and Sassy Stamps set called Poppies and Greetings.  I had my eye on this set for a long time, not only for the pretty poppies but for all the beautiful sentiments included - nine of them! I love how they cover so many occasions from "birthday" to "get well" and "thinking of you" to "thank you"!   They fit perfectly on tags, ovals, or small Nesties too.
I may not make a card every day with these pretty poppies, but I've already reached for these sentiments nearly every day!
The doily is cut with a Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party die which you can now find at Sweet and Sassy Stamps, along with some of their other beautiful dies!  I cut a black circle to put behind the white doily just to give a little more definition.  After coloring the poppies with copics, I used a white gel pen to accent their centers.  The whole card base is embossed with a Craft Concepts embossing folder called Budding Vines.  The little tag was cut and stamped with Papertrey Inks Tiny Tags set.
It's Friday : ) - I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Bridget
