Poppy You're special

This card was made with the Poppy image Annes Digital Art for The Outlawz - Freebie / Progressive Challenge June 2015 using Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #104 (turning it portrait).  Click on and see The Outlawz Challenges and Sunday Stamps Design Teams' inspirations for this challenge, and visit Anne's images for her other artwork.

I was looking up to see the season for the Poppy and found that poppies are most plentifully available in the spring and summer and are grown both commercially and in gardens throughout the USA.  My sister-in-law always had large variety of wild flowers in her gardens (the poppy was one of them) and her gardens popped with all the colors. Read more about poppies at America Meadows.

Also Submitted to: Aud Sentiments Challenge - 2nd Week - Summertime for random drawing

Using a larger Stamp Set of Poppies borrowed from my friend and neighbor I stamped in black ink and then did some fussy-cut on two of the edges and adhered to the bottom right-hand corner inside of card. Personal sentiment will be added to card when I use this card for someone special.
