Poppy Cluster (Red)

I think I must have read the minds of the team at I love Promarkers as I made this card last night for a friend. She had seen my white version and wanted one with more colour. So this is another version of the Just Inklined Digi stamp

I used an 8x8 scalloped card blank, red card, mirror board and gems are from my stash. Backing paper from Nitwits, and flowers from WOC.  I cut the image with Spellbinders Grand Circles and added Grand Scalloped Circles large. The corners are from Marriane Creatables.

The butterfly is a memory box and I managed to buy the backing butterfly at the show on Sunday.  Leaves are a MS punch and a Crealies. The insert is from Jane Shasky's cd 'In the Garden' which you can buy from Joanna Sheen.

The inside butterflies are cut with Cheery Lynn Dies, and I added ribbon from my stash.

Coloured, as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils. I sprayed the backing butterfly with Spray and Sparkle multicolour from Crafters Companion but it doesn't show very well in the pictures.
I am entering I love Promarkers challenge #114 'Flower power/Floral Image',       Passion for Promarkers Challenge #146 'Cut it out'  and Deep Ocean Challenge #24 'Use punches/dies'

Thank you for looking
