A Poppy for Brenda!

Good Morning Everyone, 
Brenda over at Floral Fantasies is celebrating her 4th blogversary and is almost at 4000 followers!! To celebrate she is holding a little competition, to make a card taking inspiration from her. Whether it be to case one of her cards or her blog header etc. 
There are alot of poppies on Brenda's cards and I think it is safe to say she has a soft spot for a Poppy. I love poppies too, so I decided I would make a card with one of these gorgeous flowers.
I thought I would try something a bit different but unfortunately the gorgeous card I had in my head is not the one you can see on my blog!!! 
The image was a free download but I can't remember where I got it from. If you do recognise it, would you let me know so that I can put a link back and give the credit where it's due.  I coloured it with my promarkers.
That was it really, just added a few gems and a bit of ribbon!
Congratulations Brenda!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog today and for all your comments. Lorraine x

It's amazing how many of us have a love of poppies Lorraine and I never tire of seeing them on artwork.

Your image looks really good on the Kraft and the clean crisp style of your card gives a feel of sheer elegance.

I have to admit I have never tried colouring onto Kraft, I think it's something I really need to try out one of these days as the effect is so striking.

Thanks so much for joining in my blog celebration and for your kind works which are much appreciated.

Well, I don't know what image you had in your head but I think this one is absolutely gorgeous! I also like the red and kraft combo and having just a piece of ribbon for embellishment really shows off the image.
