6/23 Tangerine Bloom

My mother loved poppies and she had some in red and some in bright orange. When I saw the color challenge at SCS this morning, I knew I had to pull this set out so I could make a Tangerine colored poppy. The challenge was to use Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Summer Sun. Very summery colors!! (And, boy, has summer ever arrived! We'll be enjoying (?) mid-90's today with a lot of humidity - yikes!)

I broke my 1/2" Circle Punch making this card this morning. NOT good, but lesson learned. You cannot punch through a layer of watercolor paper and a layer of SU cardstock at the same time. I think I learned that lesson once before and today was reminded that I needed to learn it again. humph.

I am really excited about the ribbon. I love how well the new In Color Crushed Curry ribbon goes so well with Summer Sun. It's great to have this color join the ribbon lineup.
