Corrosive Challenge GDT Card

Morning all today is the start of a new challenge at Corrosive Challenges and this is my last GDT card for them.  I have so enjoyed being their GDT for the month of June and I am sure the next GDT will enjoy it as much as I have.
The theme this week is Use Lots of Flowers which is not going to be to difficult as I know how much flowers bought or handmade mean to us lol.
Here is my card which I hope will give a little inspiration to you.
I have used an 8x8 white card base the digi image which, I am sure you will love, is called Poppy and is a new digi image available from Funky Kits.
The red and grey bp I created myself with the use of MCS graphics programme, a couple of weeks ago my Oriental Poppies were in full bloom, last year I had about two, this year I had over fourteen stems and they were a beautiful sight so I took some photos.  I reduced the photo then tiered it into the bp, the mirror card has been embossed with the butterfly embossing folder I added some ribbon, flowers and the 'poppy' word is a stamp from Joanna Sheen's Poppy Fairy collection.  The image I coloured with promarkers.
Here is a closer look at Poppy.
My friend who pops in for a cuppa said it looked like a strawberry....cheek...lol.
I also used the field of sky stamp around the image which I think looks like poppy seeds.
I am also entering this into the following challenges:

Hugs to all and please stop by later to see my début card for OSAAT.
