New Poppy Seed Challenges by Lisa Johnson

I'm so excited! The very talented Lisa Johnson is starting a new series of challenges. She's calling it the Poppy Seed Challenge. Here's her very first one.
She'll be posting a challenge about twice a month. You'll have a week to link your post to her blog. Each challenge will have 3 different "seeds" or elements that you should have on your project. This week's challenge requires the use of crystals (bling), a flower stamp, and the color light yellow.

Here's what I made.  I used Summer Sunrise and Enchanted Evening for my colors. (After I typed this post, I realized that the color was supposed to be "light" yellow. Sorry, Lisa!)


The flowers are from the Friends Til the End set. I masked the middle flower and stamped the images in Enchanted Evening ink. I also used the Enchanted Evening satin ribbon to tie a simple bow. 

The sentiment is from Signature Greeting. I stamped it in Versamark ink and embossed it using sapphire powder. I love how shiny it is! Then, there's my bling.

Of course, I had to finish the inside. I like to take an element from the front of the card to decorate the inside. I also try to keep the design flat so that it won't add any more bulk. I masked the flower when I stamped the leaves.
If you have time, please visit Lisa's blog and join the challenge. You'll find so much inspiration.
