Janey's Digi Designs Icelandic Poppy Seed Head (20% off at the minute!!)

Hi there, busy week for me and haven't been in blogland much but today I've had a fabulous day with bestie Lesley, and  another great crafting buddy, Alex Kamann, and eventually got this card out from  where it's been lurking in my head for the last few weeks!  I've used this awesome, Icelandic Poppy Seed Head from Janey's Digi Designs, (who also has a fabulous 20% discount at the minute) and used the colours from one of my blouses for the colour palette inspiration! (Pic below).
I coloured the image with Copics for a change - I've gone over the lines in one or two places, the seed pods were so tiny but I don't think it matters 
As you can see, I also made my own background paper by making the image smaller and rotating it for variety.  The frame is a new Spellbinder one and I love how it frames this little beauty! 
The little tag and sentiment are from PTI and the other items are from stash!
Gonna catch up with my blogging now!  Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend!!xxx

I saw this IRL and it's STUNNING! Love the miniaturised versions in the background and how you have darkened the background colour around the images. It does go beautifully with your blouse!!! I had a great time yesterday. Thank you for coming and for the Daffs! Happy Easter! Hugs, Lesley
