A flamingo bird-day...
Happy May Day...

Poppies in red...

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!

Supplies:  CS:  PTI rustic cream and SU! print poetry dsp.  Stamps:  Rubbernecker poppies and Paper Smooches sentiment sampler.  Other:  Memento black, chalk, button and twine.

Very pretty card! I agree, black would have been striking, but you don't have to apologize! I love all flowers but my favorite is daisies. I have to give retro rubber a try now that you mentioned it's for old stamps of which I do have quite a bit of, lol..
