Happy Birthday Poppies

Hello friends.  I hope you all are staying safe and well.
I have another birthday card to share.
I was inspired by the Fusion Card Challenge when I saw the image with the poppies and the sketch.  I have used both for my card.
I stamped my poppies from Gina K. Designs Inspired Poppies on a piece of heavy white card and  used an oval to die cut it.  I colored it with SU Poppy Parade Blends and went over the stems with a green marker.  I added a pale wash with my aqua brush and lt. blue ink around the poppies.  The  sentiment from MFT's BB Greetings Galore is stamped with Versamark Ink on the black strip and embossed with white embossing powder.  The background panel is embossed with SU Pinewood Planks EF.  I mounted the poppy panel with foam tape.

I am linking to the following challenges:
CAS Watercolor Challenge - I hope the watercolor panel counts.  I used watercolor, stamping, heat embossing and dry embossing.
