Oh so Pretty Poppies!

I think I had to pick a favorite flower it would be Poppies, I just love the simplicity of them and the bright colors.  I made this card using one of the images from Tiffany Doodles, I just love her images and she just redid her store, check it out if you like digital images.  I made this card to enter into the monthly challenge blog at Tiffany Doddles Blog, kind of nice to do a monthly challenge as it gives you more time to create, she even gives away some of her images each month.  Also this week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge the theme is "WHATEVA" which is so much fun and I thought this digital stamped image was perfect!
My Mom also loves poppies and her birthday is coming up so I made this for her.  It was made over several days, she comes and spends the winter with us from Colorado so I always had to have two things going and every time she came in my room I had to hide it and pull out the other card, LOL..........I colored the poppies using my Promarkers, using the colors Poppy and Bright Orange and blended them together.  The leaves were also colored using Promakers.  The background paper is from the DCWV Crafty stack.  The cream colored strip on the left side is pearl paper that I embossed using of the the Cuttlebug embossing folders that comes in the Asian set.

The largest poppy I colored twice and cut one of and pop dotted it over the top of the other one to give it a little depth.  I think image would make a fabulous "spotlight" card, I may have to try that soon.  Happy Birthday is a Gina K stamp that I heat embossed using a pearl orange powder.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leave me a comment so I know you stopped by.  I love reading them!
