Poppy Seed Challenge #1

I love challenges!  Today I am participating in Lisa Johnson's 1st Poppy Seed Challenge.  
The only requirement is to somehow incorporate each of the 3 seeds she has listed. I love crystals and flower stamps, but rarely use yellow.  I enjoyed working with my Lemon Tart cardstock though!
I stamped the small flower from Year of Flowers: Violets in Versamark Ink then embossed with with American Crafts ZING! Clear embossing powder. 
I stamped the big violet onto some Pretty Pastels PP and the leaves onto Bitty Box  PP in Spring Moss using Dark Chocolate ink.  Then added three Gems (purchased at Archiver's) to the center of the flower.
This sentiment is from Asian Fusion and is also stamped on some Pretty Pastels PP in Dark Chocolate ink.  The buttons are both from the Holiday Mix collection and are tied on with Rustic Cream Button Twine.

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!
