Play Date Cafe challenge #80

Here's our photo inspiration for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge:


LOVE that jug of poppies!  Here is my entry for this week:


I haven't played with this poppy silhouette stamp in a long while, and what better time?  The sentiment is from Flourishes and I think its cheery wishes is the perfect one for these flowers.

supplies:  white and red cardstock, My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow dp (orange dots), Hero Arts CG140 Poppy Background, versamark ink and white embossing powder, Momento Hero Hues Markers to color in the flowers and stems, Flourishes Spring Has Sprung (sentiment), versafine onyx black ink, tiny punched tag from Carol, Hobby Lobby stitched red ribbon
