A Card for the Sir Stampalot "Poppy" Challenge

I was looking through my stamps the other day and found a poppy stamp, and as if by chance I also came across a challenge for which it is just ideal and that is:-
So this is the card I started to create.
I used a stamp that I had been given as a freebie on one of my craft magazines, it was stamped onto white card and for a change I thought I would use my Karisma polycromatic pencils, I used several reds and oranges to get the shades I wanted, then cut it out with my oval Nestabilitie die, afterwards I cut a mount out of red card with a deckle edge one. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been also mounted onto a piece of the same red card.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, and I was lucky to find a "Poppy" digi paper set from Creative Cottage which I felt went well with the colour scheme. The first is a red background then on top I have used two strips on which I have used one of my Martha Stewart Flower border punches, then a Ive wrapped a ribbon around the middle and positioned my mounted image towards the right, and the sentiment at the bottom on the left.
I then wrapped three poppies in a bunch with a piece of velvet ribbon and tied it in a bow and stuck it at the top on the left.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Good afternoon Shirley,

I am so pleased you found that stamps because it's created a beautiful card and your colouring with those pencils has produced beautiful shading.

I'm really thrilled to see so many of my blogging friends taking the time to join in my fun challenge, thank you so much and good luck with the draw for the voucher.
