Back to my card for today.

This has to be one of the quickest cards I have ever made. The part that took the longest was deciding on the colours to paint my Poppies.

I opted for a mixed bouquet, using Zig Clean Color Pens in Blue, Pink, Orange, Yellow, Green, Black and a bit of Turquoise, and shading in Light Pink, which is unusual for me, but I like the change it offers.

The sentiment is stamped with VersaFine Clair ink in Paradise, and the panel is die cut using MFT Stitched Rectangles Dies.

To put the card together I prepared a Blue Denim card base and attached a Bumblegum Pink matting piece that I embossed using my Leafy Vine Embossing Folder by Taylored Expressions.

I added fun foam to the back of my Poppy watercolour using the Be Creative Tape and attached it offset to the front of the card.
