I just love these poppies! I colored them using these Copic markers:

I used a Martha Stewart Garden Lattice border punch matted onto black cs. The black corner embellishments are Spellbinders Fleur de Lis accents and the sentiment is ovals and scalloped oval dies. The card front is a wonderful poppy red (also from MFP).

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Be sure to come back tomorrow for another wonderful featured set.

Karen,

OMG! Your poppies look fantastic! I really need to learn how to use the copics! I like your corner die too. And your border punch you added to the right side of your card! If someone wasn't sure if they wanted this set, then your card should reassure them that it's a great set, because of what you accomplished here! Beautiful!
Wishing you inky fingers,
Kristy
