Purple and Poppies

Hello!  I have been playing with some digital images that I received from Crafty Secrets.... I just love their flower images....and chose a Poppy image and sentiment for my design.  I used both the sketch and photo inspiration from Fusion shown below.  The image was colored with Copics and some Glaze Pens and then trimmed with an Oval die.  I placed this on a scalloped oval of Purple CS which I also used as the Card Base. The background of a soft ivory paper was embossed with CB EF Kassie's Brocade.  I finished with a Mini Fanciful Flourish cut with Cheery Lynn die and the printed sentiment cut with a Spellbinders die .  Love how this card "pops" out.
