Raspberry Poppy

Well, another weekend is nearly over...why do they go so quickly?? Anyway, my card today is for four challenges.

First, is Freshly Made Sketches with this sketch,

then ColourQ with these colours,

then Stampin' Royalty with the theme of

and lastly, Crazy 4 Challenges who want FLOWERS AND PEARLS

Here's my card

I embossed some grey card and laid it on some DP, wrapped it with a ribbon, and then onto a white base. I stamped the poppy in Archival black, and coloured it with my Aqua Painter, before cutting it with a Nestie, and placing it with 3D pads. Then, AAAAHHHHH! a disaster happened. I dropped my inked sentiment on the Nestie. Luckily, to cover some of the mistake, I could stamp it again, higher than I originally wanted 
(over the bottom of the stems) and I added 3 pearls to cover the rest ( not easy to see in the photo, sorry). The finishing touch was the addition of a bow and a pearl bodied butterfly.
