Poppin' Poppies - FMS54

Good Morning everybody!  It's a crisp, sunny, beautiful Monday morning here in eastern Montana.  The colors are turning on the trees and the leaves are crispy under your feet....Fall is amazing!  OK, on to today's card.  I made this for Freshly Made Sketches 54.
I also used an older Dynamic Duos color combo of Poppy Parade and Lucky Limeade.  This is the first card I've made with the Pleasant Poppies stamp.  It sure is pretty!  I stamped it on the circle in black Stazon ink, colored the stems, then stamped again on a scatch piece of CS.  I colored the poppy heads with my blender pen and Poppy Parade ink pad, cut each of them out and popped them up on dimentionals.  I love how it turned out! 
I added in Black as my neutral.  All these colors are so striking together.  When SU first introduced Poppy Parade as an in-color, I was hesitant.  I usually gravitate towards the blue-toned reds, but I have fallen in love with this color.  Plus, it couldn't be more perfect with this stamp!  I know it's retired now, but I'll just keep using it until all my supplies are gone!
For the button detail, I removed the "legs" off the brad and added a glue dot to adhear it to the black button.
Here's a list of supplies.....
Stamps: Pleasant Poppies, Perfect Words
Paper: Black, Very Vanilla, In-color Lucky Limeade & Sunny Day DP
Accessories: Circle cutting system from Creating Memories, Black striped grosgrain ribbon, Black button, In-color brad
Thanks for taking a peek and have a super day!
