Poppy Fields

Hello Everyone.
I haven't done a post for a few days, Mr Mojo is taking his time to come home!! I've coloured a few images and they've all ended up in the bin!! 
I hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous weather. Hubby was at work yesterday so I took the kids to the seaside for the day. Fish & chips for lunch and ice cream on the beach.
Anyway today's card is using a Penny Black stamp called Poppy Fields, and is following the sketch at Simon Says Stamp.
I know poppies are usually red, and I did initially do that but then spent 2 hours getting very frustrated trying to find the right papers!! So I did it again and changed the colour - blue poppies!! The background papers are from K & Company.
I've finished off with a Marianne creatable butterfly and some gems and ribbon from my stash.
I'd like to enter the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp - Sketch
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Summertime
Penny Black & more - Summer Blooms
Simon Says Stamp & Show - No Rules
Divas by Design - Anything Goes.

Enjoy what's left of the weekend and thank you for taking the time to visit me today and for all your lovely comments.

Another wonderful card. They must be Himalayan blue poppies and they are super, as is the little hedgehog.
A day at the beach - what a great idea. Maybe I can persuade the other half that he needs a holiday!!
