Today and Always

 A clean and simple card design today using a Layered Poppy Stamp set from Rubbernecker that I purchased quite some time ago and hadn't used yet.  It's a two piece set - one is the outline of the poppies and stems that I stamped in black  and the other is solid shapes that line up with but don't quite fill in the blooms that I inked in red - giving it a water colored look.

I stenciled around the poppies, added the sentiment and dots of black Nuvo Drops to the center of each poppy.

I'm linking my card to:
