Stampin' B's-Poppies

I absolutely love poppies and this one is by Mark's Finest Papers called Poppies, Poppies, Poppies. This week Emily is hostess for the Stampin' B's Design Team and asked that we use a clip or pin of any kind. I made my stick pin with beads from Jo-Ann Stores. My card is really easy to make. I used an embossing folder from Sizzix called ornate frames. I colored my poppies with Copics and cut out and colored one extra to pop up at the top. I finished with a ribbon and, of course, the stick pin.

Hope you'll join us this week.
