Popping Poppies

Couldn't wait to use my new Stampin' Up Pleasant Poppies stamp...then was stunned to see the actual size...I shouldn't have been...I can READ can't I? It is very clear in the catalog!

Even so... I still really love the image. It holds loads of potential!

Ever have one of those cards that just didn't work out in reality the way it 'appeared' conceptually in your mind? This is THAT card. Loved the color combinations over at Play Date so wanted to 'play' along! I don't know what it is just too 'flat'. Maybe it needs more design paper layers...maybe I need to take it apart and start over...
