Pretty poppies

The MFT pretty poppies stamp set is first MFT stamp set I bought and I have made cards using this stamp set here is one more card which I made for MFT card design superstar contest.
I used this stamp set first time with distress inks, yes the flowers are stamped with distress ink spun sugar. First stamped the image with spun sugar and with help of thin brush, water and picked raspberry distress ink I added more detail and depth to the flower. For the centre of the flowers I used vintage photo distress inks and for leaves and stem I used moved lawn. At bottom of the card I distressed the paper with antique linen and stamped the script image from the same stamp set in antique linen ink.
