All awash with poppies

 The inside of the card........
The challenge on CD Sunday this week is awash with flowers. I realise I am certainly awash with flowers, I had so many CDs to choose from. I decided on this Shabby chic Victorian Botanical CDrom from Debbi Moore as I haven't had a chance to use these poppies yet. My original intention was to use one of my many poppy stamps for the main image, but I loved this sentiment so much that I decided to make the whole card from elements on the CDrom.
Although you can't really tell from the pictures, i printed two colourways of the poppy paper, the one on the front is a slightly softer shade of red. I also inked around the edges of the nestie and sentiment with an Anna Griffin red ink pad, then used it to soften further the edges of the front backing paper.
I've had another nice win, this time $20 to spend at The Paper Shelter who were the sponsors for Creative Inspirations challenge last week.
