Poppies for Mum

Hello!  No sooner is Christmas over then its my Mums birthday :D  When she was growing up her family always saved the Christmas Pudding until her birthday and this is what we still do :D  Lucky Mum!  Always a treat to look forward to :D  Its Indigo Blu week over at ~The Craft Barn Blog~ and I couldn't resist these gorgeous poppies and used them to make her a card...  


The poppies are a good size, this card is 4x6inches.  The largest poppy has been stamped separately & layered over the other two.  I used Inktense pencils to colour them in and added lack Sakura Glaze on the stamens and fine red glitter to the petals.  Mum loves a bit of bling :d
