Red Poppies Elf from Aurora wings

Good morning folks, I'm rushing off to work as usual but before I go  I just wanted to share this card made for the first challenge at the new Aurora Wings Challenge blog where the theme is 'Anything Goes'. I adore Mitzi's images, they are so beautifully detailed but I haven't had much spare time for the last few weeks so it was lovely to have a little time to colour. This image is Red Poppies Elf with Poppy Blooms

The image has been coloured with Graph'It markers and framed with Spellbinders die cuts. I made the background using stamps from Indigo Blu and distress inks (Bundled Sage and Festive Berries). I've matted on red and then kraft card and added lace, ribbon, a button topped with a little twine bow, a few little paper poppies and a metal butterfly.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
A Gem of a challenge: ribbon and lace
Divas By Design: buttons and bows
Fairytale Stampers: favourite colours (bundled sage is my favourite colour DI)
MilkCoffee: spring
Pile it on: floral fantasy
Thanks so much for visiting today,
