Daisy Doodles DT card - A Gem of a Poppy

Well here it is, my first project as DT member with Daisy DoodlesThis is the first week of Daisy's Image Inspirations. Every other Wednesday Daisy Doodles Design Team will be featuring an image. The image that is featured will be offered at a reduced price or for Free. This week Miss Daisy is offering this "Poppy"  digi image for FREE. Check out Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges Blog and see how each DT member used the image and find out how to get your free "Poppy" image.  It's really wonderful to see how many people see the same image differently.
I was given this image and thought, what can I do with it other than colouring in with pens and pencils and this is the result.  I printed the image off onto printable acetate, then using dries clear glue I added shades of glitter.  This was then allowed to dry for at least 24hrs, by which time the lovely sparkle shone through the acetate, I then cut around the image ready to mount onto my base card.  I made the base card from an A4 sheet of Snow white Centura Pearl card from Crafters Companion, folded to give an A5 card, using the Framey board from The Glitter Girls I then embossed the simple frame on the card base, then on red mirri and then on to more snow white centura pearl, mounted them up with foam pads, added the Poppy and sentiment to give the finished result.

I hope you like it, the photo doesn't quite do it justice - it is quite stunning even if I do say so myself :o)

I have also entered this card into: Crafter Companions 'Anything Goes' challenge: http://ccmonthlychallenge.blogspot.com/
