When I was little, my favorite flowers were poppies and bachelor buttons. I loved them because of how different they looked and how wild and beautiful they were. I still love both of those flowers today but have added daisies to the mix. So when I found these poppy stamps from Rubbernecker I just had to have them!
I stamped the image on rustic cream cardstock and then used my trusty old old old chalk to color them. I liked the little flowers in the dsp and thought it would pair well with both the image and the rustic cream paper. My apologies to you – I must have been color blind when I grabbed the brown button and twine. I thought it would go well with the paper, and it does, I just think I should have used black. That is what I get for looking at my card the next day!
I am using the sketch from Retro Sketches today and instead of using a separate piece for the sentiment, I just added the sentiment to the card front. I liked that it fit so perfectly!
What are your favorite flowers? Please leave me a comment and let me know! With May Day tomorrow, are you planning any May Day baskets? I’m not but I sure loved them when I was a kid!!
Don’t forget about the Retro Rubber challenge – it’s anything goes! And that means – hey, link up your card right HERE because you qualify for the challenge (of course, the stamps need to be older than a year!).
Thanks for stopping by today!
