Poppy by Mitzi - Scrapbook Stamp Society

Good morning and welcome to my new follower Lindsay I'm always happy to have anyone join my blog.
Hmmmmm what a day yesterday was. The tumble drier came and the men were quite happy to take the old one away but would not put the new one where the old one had been.  It was in a cupboard on a shelf with the washing machine underneath. According the the jobsworth they should only be used on the floor???? strange I've had one on that shelf for the last 30 years without any problems. No he said it might fall off, so even though I told him I have major back problems he still wouldn't do it.  So of course after they left it was up to me to lift it into position and my back is certainly telling me now that I shouldn't have done it ;(.... I searched all the bumph that came with it and no where does it say that it has to be used on the floor. Men..........

Anyway enough moaning and onto today's card.  It's Poppy by Mitzi from the Scrapbook Stamp Society. I really am a sucker for poppies. I love colouring them and love the bold bright cards they make.

It's cut with a SB grand labels 23 with the same cut in matt gold mirror board. The butterfly is one of the new SB range. Backing paper and black gems from my stash. The sentiment is from Creative expressions.

Coloured of course with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils with a little pumice stone distress ink added to the background.

The inside does reflect the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look. Hope you're having a good week

The previous comments have said it all...except "WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! What a beautiful card, Eileen. I thought your image was a topper - it is so perfectly coloured. I LOVE poppies (in fact I printed a digi poppy bunch and die cut it today - waiting to be coloured).

I also love the way you have cut, then offset the same Label - must try that.
