Oriental Poppy - Just Inklined

Good eventing everyone. I'm here with one I wanted to post yesterday for Remembrance Day but the light got me. By the time I had finished it the light had gone. So this is my tribute to all the men and women who have fought and died for this country, and those who continue to fight to keep us as the free nation we are.
Tonight I give you Oriental Poppy by Just Inklined, I bought it ages ago as I love poppies.

I coloured it up ages ago but was still too late to post yesterday :(  As I used such a fancy Marianne Creatable die cut behind it I didn't think it needed more flowers.  The centre panel is cut with SB Lacey Ovals.  I matted onto gold mirror board and card from my stash.

It is coloured as always with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with a little Prisma pencil to highlight a little.

My only other addition was a few pearls and some Antique Linen distress ink.

The inside really does reflect the front this time.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thank you so much for taking the time to look and thanks to the men and women out there who keep us safe.
