Poppies, Poppies, Sleep my Pretties...

I always think so that scene from The Wizard of Oz when I think of Poppies! I love that scene! Here is the photo for inspiration at Sir Stampalot.
Here is my card:

I had fun making this card because I love fairies and poppies! The papers are K&Co. The poppies are StampinUp and I don't know the manufacturer of the Fairy stamp. The saying is a rubon. I rubbed 2 shades of green ink on a glossy panel and embossed the images with pewter embossing powder. I colored the Poppies with Copic markers. I added a sparkly flower with beads for the middle, a ribbon with beads down the middle, and a leaf punch. Here are the challenges that I have created this card for.
