I love the Flower Patch stamp set and was so sad to see it retire. The large flower image always made me think of fireworks so I thought it was a perfect image to be the star on a 4th of July card. For the smaller flower, I stamped the flower in Versa Mark on the Bashful Blue cardstock. In addition to using some Poppy Parade to stamp the inside of the small flower, I also punched out a small circle in Poppy Parade, adhered it to the center of the flower, and added some Crystal Effects to give it some shine and dimension. I masked the word “you” from the sentiment so it features “Celebrate” instead of “Celebrate You”.
