Poppy Seed Challenge #1

Hi everybody,
Today’s post is for another challenge. I love challenges. Just to try different styles, different designs and colors. This one is for Lisa’s challenge. 
Here is what her challenge says
There will be very little structure… just 3 “seeds” to start with. The seeds I’m talking about are simply elements in three different categories. Color, embellishment and an image element. There will usually be just one of each of these seeds that will be required to participate. (So I would ever required you to used 20 gems or something like that! LOL!)
And here is my take on the challenge.

I have used all SU products to make this card.  I do not have any flowers from PTI yet.They are in transit.A quick and simple card using “Rose is a rose” Stamp set from SU. Rhinestones from Kaisercraft. CS and accessories from Su. Button from spotlight and punch from Fiskars.
Edited: Sorry ! I did not know that the previous photo was elongated! What happened? I don’t know!  I have since reloaded the same photo and this time it is better.

Thanks for the challenge and thanks for eveybody stopping by.

Edited: Sonya had left a comment on this post asking for what color ink is the deep red flowers and what color is the ribbon. Sonya, I could not find your email on your blog to answer your question. So I thought I will put it up here, in case you come back once again to read. The deep red on the flowers are Bravo Burgundy Ink from SU and the ribbon is one of the free ribbon spools received during SU promotion. The color is close to Apricot Appeal color.Hope it helps.
