Love This Poppy!

Good morning everyone. It's really unusual for me to post on a Monday morning unless I've scheduled a post but today I have a day off. Fantastic!
Since I had that lovely Penny Black stamp out I thought I'd use it to make a card for the Penny Black challenge. I love poppies anyway so any excuse to use a poppy image and this one is really gorgeous, isn't it, very elegant.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Sentiment & Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.
DP :- Craftshouse.
Colouring :- Promarkers..
Inkssentials pen for faux stitching.
Velvet ric rac, flowers and pearls from stash.

This card also fits the challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts which is black and white plus one other colour.

Well I'd best go and check on these naughty pups as they're outside in the garden and probably eating plants and digging up the grass! Hope you like.

Thanks for looking, time for a coffee now!
