Grateful Greetings with a pop of color

I needed a few cards to say thank you to some retiring board members for my music teacher organization of which I am president.  I decided to use a new technique I found on papercrafter's library called blended background.  I used River Rock, Sahara Sand, and Crumb Cake for the background.  I then stamped the medallion and the thank you in Not Quite Navy. 
I stamped the leaves in Poppy Parade on a separate sheet of paper, cut them out, and spritzed them with Gold Smooch Spritz.
I like the pop of color that the poppy parade brings to the card - I found the color combo in my color coach.
And here's the inside of the card - we wouldn't want to leave it naked!!!  Quick and easy, but a nice touch.
