A country card with beautiful poppies

I've been saying to Brenda at floral fantisies I'm going to make a poppy card for her candy challenge , so here it is at long last. I love poppies, always a beautiful sight growing wild in fields. I have several varieties that pop up in the garden in the strangest of places,the gaps in paving and gravel, always welcome though.

My card card features a Penny Black stamp,aptly named "Poppy Fields". I've coloured with copic markers trying to keep the shades muted. The papers are serif , picnic in the park. The tag is Diary of an Edwardian Lady , free with a craft mag.
The flowers are made using several different floral punches, the petals,2 different size Marianne punches with matching embossers.The black stamen centres are an em punch,very useful one and the leaf are a woodware punch. Bit of red ribbon ,chalk inked edges and some red gems complete the look.

other challenges entered :

Allsorts : case it , case Emma's gorgeous Hedgy card

stamping for the weekend : photo inspiration

have a good Sunday, dull here this morning,after the rain last might.

The morning Jane,

Poppies do seem to grow in the most unusual places, just yesterday I saw one peeking out from under the greenhouse. I think it must be seeded from cultivated variety because it's a beautiful double one.

This is a beautiful Penny Black poppy poppy image, looks really striking the way you have coloured it and the combination of nesties very effective.

Thank you so much taken time to join in my little fun challenge.

Have a good Sunday,
