Oops! A little late!

I can't believe that I forgot to post my card for our challenge at Addicted to CAS!  I have had the card finished for a few days just sitting here but just completely forgot to blog it. DUH!  Our challenge this week is a good one...and one that I have used probably more than any other image in my stamping career. :)
Our amazing sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps!!!! They are generously offering you a pack of 7 digi's from their store!!!
The hardest part of this challenge was trying to decide which flower stamp to use. I have SOOOO many and I keep telling myself that I'm not going to buy any more but Stampin' Up! always seems to come out with more fabulous flower sets that I just HAVE to have. :)  This is one of my new favorites.
I love this big background stamp because it makes such a quick and easy card.  Stamp, color with blender pens and ink, add an embossed frame over the top with a bow and a little tag and you're done! Oh, and don't forget a little bling in the center of the flowers. :)
Stamp Sets: Pleasant Poppies, Tiny Tags
Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse, Old Olive
Tools: Ovals Collection Framelits, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Jewelry Tag Punch, Blender Pen
Accessories: Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Rhinestones
