bloom in adversity

Hello friends... back this evening with another card.  This one is for the current Dynamic Duos color challenge (Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose), as well as the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch #116.  Did lots of stamping with this one... no patterned paper in sight!

 
I used the newly released MFT/LJD Pretty Poppies stamp set, as well as the matching dies and my all time favorite MFT dies... Fishtail Flag Stax!  The flower heads were die cut and then stamped with the flowers using Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink.  I also die cut some leaves and stamped them, along with the stems in Crumb Cake (kraft) ink.  The Pretty Poppies comes with this long script stamp that I used the for piece underneath the fishtail flag and was stamped using Pretty in Pink ink. That piece was matted with some kraft cardstock to break up all the white.  Adhered the flower heads and leaves and then finished everything off with a bit of Regal Rose ribbon and the sentiment that I stamped on a MFT Mini Doily Circle die.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and kraft; Stamps and dies:  My Favorite Things; Ink:  Stampin Up!; Ribbon:  Stampin Up!
