Poppin' Poppies

I'm really NEW to being a Stampin' Up demonstrator/hobbyist. I was 'surfing' for some Stampin' Up challenges and ran across SUO and realized I have some scraps of SU design paper but don't know the names of them.

I got up extra early this morning with thoughts of Pleasant Poppies by Stampin' Up. I wasn't thrilled with yesterday's attempt with the Poppies. So....at 5 am I got this started - ran home at lunch for a few more moments in the Bubble - then home again tonight at 7:15 pm for the finishing touches.

The challenge at Stampin' Up Only was to use Stampin' Up design paper. Well that is what I did...they didn't say how OLD or new the design paper was to be...so here we go... I don't know the name of these so please bear with me.

Paper Poppies
~Base card Stampin' Up So Saffron (MAYBE...what is it?! It matches the design paper perfectly)
~Layer of striped Stampin' Up design paper (what the heck is the name of it?!)
~Floral strip and sentiment 'buckle' from the Stampin' Up Simply Scrappin' coordinating self-adhesive die cut
~Three rhinestones
~Red cardstock die cut with Stampin' Up Framelits Label
~More of the Stampin' Up design paper (floral) that is quite old and again - I don't know the name of it - cut using the next smaller Framelits Label die cut
~Image stamped and colored with Stampin' Up Write Journalers: Old Olive, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red, Summer Sun, More Mustard; all the flower heads and buds were paper pieced and popped up with dimensionals and allowed to them to flow outside the Framelit
