Miles Apart But Still in My Heart on Your Birthday

The solitary Poppy is stunning against a yellow watercolor background surrounded by bright colors. I combined three stamp sets and the Lovely Label Pick a Punch from my stash to whip up this cute card. The Pattern Party exclusive Host Designer Series Paper rounded out the fun with the colorful hearts background. This is my first time using the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set and I feel like we’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the coming months. Such a simple way to add interest to a layer while still keeping the card light.
