Poppies and Pretty Links.

The Card.
As soon as I saw this awesome set from Hero Arts, I knew I needed to have it. How can you not love these poppies. So elegant and beautiful. :) Here's the card I made to highlight it:
This card was a blast to make. I just stamped the image, colored it with my favorite pinks from my Prisma colored pencils set, and then added some Crate Paper and Pearls to spruce it up. Love it!
Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream and Raspberry Fizz), Patterned Paper- Crate Paper (Restoration 6 by 6 pad), Stamp- Hero Arts (CL449 Delicate Blossoms), Twine- Papertrey Ink, Pearls- Creative Imaginations, Colored Pencils- Prisma, Ink- Tsukineko (Memento Black) and Ranger (Vintage Photo Distress Ink), White Pen- Signo, Corner Rounder- WRMK.

The Links.
Heather P. made this breathtaking card from papertrey products. I love this color combo. Yum!
Maile Belles made this card for a good cause and it's beautiful. That's a double-win in my book.
The Studio Calico blog featured this layout by Sasha Farina the other day. Wow. It makes me realize that I still haven't broken out my September kit with those awesome butterflies yet. I must get on that!
This "A Shabby Hello" card by Tiffany Johnson is amazing. You just have to see it.
Everyone knows that Jill from "inspired by..." is one of the best stampers/cardmakers out there, but this one just blew me away.
Straight up, this card is pure genius from Lisa Spangler. The felt and Lawn Fawn stamps combo is perfect.
Kelly from Lawn Fawn is always coming up with the cutest creations. This one is breathtaking and simple elegance summed up in a card. I need to make a set of these, stat.
I've always admired Joy's cards, but this one is amazing. The coloring is sooo good!

Hope you enjoyed those fantastic creations. If you have anything that's inspiring you today, leave a comment with a link. I always love extra inspiration! All of your comments have be so sweet this week. I love it!

Brit, this card is absolutely gorgeous! I have one of those poppy stamps too, but I haven't gotten around to using it yet. Your card has definitely given me some fun inspiration. I love the color combo, and I also really LOVE how you added the pearls to the centers. What a fabulous detail. Great card! :)
