All Occasion Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Poppy Love"

Hello friends.  How is everyone doing?  It has been fairly hot here in Southern CA during the day; but cooler at night.  I hope you had a nice Easter weekend with some time with your family.  

It is time again for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post; and our topic this week is Anything Goes.  That topic is always much easier for me to create.  LOL!  I am using Ching-Chou Kuik Poppy Love.  I thought this one was really pretty.  

I planned on using all purples on my card; but somehow got sidetracked and went with another of my favorites.  Lavender and shades of blue.   This is probably favorite paper of all that I own.  I just love the soft lavenders and multiple shades of blue.
