Red Poppies...

...Today's creation began with a sketch set by Mojo monday.
I enjoy following set sketches.

I just love this set of stamps by Sugar nellies, this cutee is Cherry pip.
It is the first time I've inked her up and she is coloured in using promarkers 
and what an absolute pleasure.
The colour scheme is 'seeing red' a challenge set by the Creative card crew.
I dug out the gorgeous poppy paper from the bottom of my cupboard, 
These were given to me by a generous friend 
when I first dipped my toes into the world of craft.
(some 5/6 months ago)

In this piece I have used three of my favourite embelishments
these being ribbon, pearls and gems.
All of which have come from my stash.
I should have been a magpie...
either that or gollum from Harry Potter, my shiny 'precious' things.
I love the depth that has been introduced in this card
by using the texture of the red felt against the smoothness of the design papers.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Oldie but a goodie  - use something that is at least 6 months old

My Time to Craft challenge 171  - favourite embellishment

 Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge 52 - bows

Thanx for popping by...

Keep Calm and Craft x
