Love Blooms

I am hoping to get some more images coloured and cards made for pleasure this year.  I got rather busy at the end of last year, so I was only making DT cards in the spare time I had.  
As it is coming up to Valentine's Day, I am in the mood for love and this Power Poppy image was just perfect.   It is from the 'Graceful Still Life' digital stamp set, but this image alone was a freebie in the Kit & Clowder advent calendar. 
I have gone CAS to let the image shine. 

Products used:

  • Kraft card blank
  • Cardstock
  • Papermania 'Red Hot' collection paper
  • Square gems
  • ProMarkers - Burgundy, Cardinal, Ruby, Walnut, Saddle Brown, Holly, Olive Green, Forest Green, Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, Antique Pink, Coral, Sunkissed Pink & Powder Blue
  • Prismacolor Pencils - Dark Brown, Spanish Orange, Poppy Red & White

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Monday - Love Is In The Air
  2. Creative Fingers - #154 Anything Goes
  3. Power Poppy - Let's Go Half & Half!
  4. Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - January ATG
