Lulu and her poppies

Love. This. So. Much.  The image is pretty big so that didn't leave me a lot of room to add embellishments--for the best.  The simple washi tape frame added just enough interest to that dark lime paper.  I also liked what happened with the embossing powder.  I had intended a more solid black but the way it beaded up looks way realistic for a poppy.  Any suggestions for a black embossing powder that doesn't bead up so (this one is Zing)?  As a final touch I added a little lime embossing powder to the buds and a dot of Beads in a Bottle to the flower on Lulu's hair.

The Details:
Stamping Bella Lulu Loves Poppies (and so do I :), green cardstock from old stash, Hammermill Color Copy 80lb Photo White Cover Stock, Spectrum Noir (sorry, didn't note colors at the time), Tulip metal beads in a bottle (center of flower on her headband), Zing embossing powder, washi tape, PTI white cardstock for base card

I'll be entering this in the following:   Designed to Color Use a Die #21, Love Rubberstamps Challenge Anything Goes #72, Seize the Birthday Anything Goes, and Simon Wednesday Going Dotty.
