Yellow Poppy

This came together as I was looking through die cuts  and some water colored panels that I had on hand. I started with a frame I had cut awhile back in PTI melon berry backed it with Poppy Stamps mod flower border then backed that with a water color background.  A frantic stamper white frame on top of the melon berry added a bit more texture.  I knew that I wanted a flower arrangement in the corner and finally decided I wanted a large statement so the big Iceland Poppy from Poppy Stamps would be perfect. I cut the poppy in yellow and shaded in with darker yellows. That step makes a big difference in the flower.  I kinda like how this came out.
I made this card with Poppy Stamps Spring Fling in mind.  It won't be long before the California poppies will adorn our hillsides. I will also enter Simon Says Monday Challenge Make Your Own Background
