For my card I am using Verve's Poppy Birthday stamp set along with Verve's Cut Above Build A Poppy and Flag It die sets.  I took the stems and wrapped around my stylus to create some curly ques.  I used the left over chads from the die cuttings to add some tiny red dot accenting.   I white embossed the sentiment.  I love  the way this card turned out.  

Next on the hop is Karen!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
