Poppy Pretty

This card is created for Joan's Touch  Challenge #9.  The challenge was to use ONLY dies, any color, and at least two layers.  SO!  The card base is Core-di-nations Sandable light lime green.  The main die cuts are the entire set of my new Gold Majesty Circles by Spellbinders S4-409.  The flower in the middle is from the  Susan's Garden collection by Sizzix, Flower-Poppy #658416.  This is worked on orange cardstock burnished with rust, black soot, moss, and other inks from the Ranger Distressed Inks collection.  The de-bossed part of the gorgeous frame die is touched with gold gelly-roll metallic pen. This is placed on white, edges inked, polka dot embossed white cardstock.  All of the dies are available at Joan's Gardens.   The designer paper is from K&Company Sera Tera collection.    Note: I am never very happy with my flowers, though I try again and again to create them from dies.  This poppy is better, but the overall size of the flower isn't satisfactory to me on this intricate die.  I expect that I will redo the flower and this time use the delicate Susan's Garden 658407 Mini Daisy.  I will do them in white, and touch it with orange centers and I think I'll be happier!  If I do redo this with several little white daisies, I will add the re-make to this blog post.
