Pink Poppy

I have a gorgeous poppy in my back garden which is flowering now and which gave me the urge to make a poppy card.  This stunning digi is from A Passion for Stamps and has been coloured with Promarkers.  Click here for all or Ruth's gorgeous images.
I die cut the coloured topper and inked the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink before matting and layering with these scrummy Basic Grey Kissing Booth papers.  Aren't they just to die for?!
I added corner details with a Marianne die, made the flowers with an Xcut punch and leaves with a Woodware punch.
A few gems are the final touch.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
I Love Promarkers - #118 - use die cuts
Party Time Tuesday - #70  anything goes
Sweet Sketch - #155 - sketch
Hotshot Crafts - #8 - die cuts
Card Makin' Mamas - #46 - punches
