MMSC90 Poppies

Ir is Tuesday and that means that Priscilla has an amazing sketch for us again this week at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.  I love these sketches, they are so much fun to use and going by your fabulous entries last week I can see that you are loving them too!

This week I have used this lovely Poppy image from our weekly sponsor - Stef of Glitterbabe's Digis .  Stefs digi's come ready to colour OR precoloured - how easy is that!  I coloured these ones myself - you know how I love to colour, this time I have used my Primsacolor Pencils - they give such a smooth finish.


I popped the flowers up on some thin foam tape - that way I have the dimension but the cards is not too bulky for posting.  The image is cut out using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Labels 1 Nestibilitie

This card is for the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin - Spring Flowers
Stamp Something - Use a Digi
Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
