Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Anything Goes!

Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge. This week's challenge is Anything Goes, my favorite! Next Sunday is Remembrance Day so I'm dedicating my card to all those who served in War or those are still serving for their Countries so that we can all live in peace. Last April I was reminded of what our soldiers sacrificed as my son and I was a part of the 95th Anniversary of Vimy Ridge along with his school, what an experience I will never forget.
So here is my card I started off using black metallic paper for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used Bo Bunny's collection called 'Serenade' for the rest, which I thought fit perfectly with my image choice. Laura does carry some Bo Bunny papers which you can find here;

Anyways I used a Magenta stamp called Poppies (42.092.O) which is a Canadian company. Laura does carry Magenta stamps which you can find here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_108/Magenta.htm
So I stamped my Poppies 3 times using Black Memento ink (which Laura does carry) and then I colored the images with Copic Markers with the exception of the black poppy I used Tim Holtz distress marker 'Black Soot' instead. I began to lay 1 Poppy on top of another using pop up dots. I added a piece of green chipboard flourish from the same Bo Bunny collection which gave me a starting point to add my poppies as shown. I added some red satin ribbon by May Arts over the flowers and flourish. I printed out 'In Flanders Fields', 'In Remembrance' onto shimmery white paper and cut them out using Creatable Dies called 'Anja's Label Set'.
