Pure Poppy & Dark Chocolate

I got my new goodies from Papertrey Ink yesterday and I couldn't wait to get home and play. The new color this month is a beautiful red called Pure Poppy. I paired it with last month's color Dark Chocolate and I really liked the results. The stamps are from their new set called First Fruits.

First Fruits has a lot of design elements that are different from anything else I have. I knew I had to have it when I saw the stamp that creates the pattern on the bottom of my card, but I can honestly say I like the entire set and not just a few stamps from it.

I hope to be able to get a few more cards done this week. I liked getting back into my craft room even if it was just for an hour or so. Thanks for stopping by.

Love this card! I wasn't able to order that stamp set this time, but I really think I'll need to next time:) The red looks so pretty, I did get the ink at least!

OOOh Mary - you realise I now have to have this stamp set and the Poppy stuff which i wasn't going to bother with - this is sooo elegant.
