Just a quick fly in with a card that I have made for a couple of challenges.

The challenge for Scrapology was to use this picture prompt/colour chart

I was inspired by the two darker reds and the picture of the flower with the lovely black centre to use this (new to me) Penny Black stamp.

 I stamped and embossed the poppy with versamark and black embossing powder twice, coloured them with Promarkers and then cut out the three larger flower heads and added them to the base design with pinflair gel for extra dimension.

I used a Craft Concepts embossing folder to emboss the red background.  The sentiment is Wild Rose Studios and mounted on Stampin Up punched mats.

I am also entering this card into the Penny Black and More @ Allsorts January challenge which is to use stencils, masks or embossing folders.
