I found the image panel already stamped and stenciled in my box of "rejects". Does anyone else have one of those? LOL. It's where things go that I'm unhappy with at that moment but too nice to throw away. I used a very similar image panel on this card and that was when this was stamped as well. It's funny how I no longer can remember why it ended up in the box because I no longer see anything wrong with it.
There was another sentiment stamped on the bottom corner and I wanted to use a new sentiment instead, so here I decided to use a piece of poppy red card stock to cover it up and I also added a strip of pattern paper from my never ending box of scraps. The sentiment is from a new set by Penny Black, called Blooming Sentiments. I recently felt like I needed some retail therapy and ordered a few stamps from Penny Black's newest release.

The poppy stamp is also by Penny Black - Spontaneous Joy (from an older release) inked up with Candied Apples and Barn Door Distress Markers along with Crushed Olive for the stems. The stenciling was done using a Tim Holtz Flourish Stencil and Antique Linen Distress Ink. It's been layered onto black card stock then a white card front inked with Antique Linen distress ink. A button and silk ribbon tied in a bow were added to finish off the card.
