Poppies in Orange ~ DD25

This card was totally inspired by Dynamic Duos #25 with the color combo of Pumpkin Pie and Black.  The desert option is die cuts, but I opted out of that one. 
 I was trying to go in a less Halloween-ish direction with these colors.  I chose to use the Pleasant Poppies stamp for the main image.  I absolutely love these poppies!  They are actually (and unexpectedly) really versitile.  I think you could color them any color and they would look fantastic!  I stamped them on vellum paper with versamark ink, embossed with black EP, and colored the images with marker on the back.  This is such an easy technique.  I layered the vellum on a peice of First Edition DP.  The tricky thing with vellum is attatching it without the glue/tape showing.  I used two little glue dots in each upper corner and then covered them with a pearl.
Here's a list of the supplies.....
Stamps: Pleasant Poppies
Paper: Black, Vellum, Howlstooth & Scaringbone DP, Polka Dot Parade DP, First Edition DP
Ink: Versamark, Pumpkin Pie, Black, Pear Pizzaz (flower stems)
Accessories: Brights button, Scallop dotted ribbon, Pearls, Vanilla string, Black EP.
Thanks for taking a peek and have a stupendous day!
