My sample for the hop today is a birthday card for my wonderful, sweet, and talented hairdresser, Laura!  She is a real blessing to me, so I wanted to bless her with a special birthday card!!  She showed me her fave photo from Pinterest of blue glass and apricot poppies, so I knew which paper I had to use.....along with the ODBD poppy image from 'Mother's Day'.  I stamped the image twice, cut one out with the ODBD 'Poppy Die', then cut out the three blossoms by hand to pop up for even more dimension.
