Planted in my heart...


I'm a big fan of the Tiny Townie Garden Girls and I have been hanging on to Poppy here ever since I got her because I knew that I wanted to color her up as my most favorite flower ever... the California Poppy. And there's no better time for California Poppies than summer time. It always cheers me up to see masses of these beautiful orange blooms dancing happily in the breeze so I tried to capture that just a bit in the scene I created for Poppy. I challenged myself to do her in no-line and I gotta say that it was kinda nerve wracking! I struggled with all those petals and keeping them looking separate from each other but am pretty happy with them in the end. And I'm going ahead and entering this card into the "free form" Bellarific Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
