Today's card is for three challenges - Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge  (polka dots, coloring and sparkle or polka dots, sequins and summer), Seize the Birthday (watercoloring) and Festive Friday (birthday, floral, CAS and single image).

I stamped my poppy on watercolor paper and used DI inks (worn lipstick, wild honey, abandoned coral, peeled paint and shabby shutters) to color my flower. The background "polka dot" piece was mounted on a champagne metallic card base (part of my sparkle altho difficult to see in the photo) and I stamped and embossed the sentiment.  I have no idea where the dotted background piece came from - have had it in my stash and was sort of "saving" it 'cause it was "too nice to use".  If anyone knows about this background die, I'd love to know who manufactured it or who sent it to me.  Anyway, finally attached the poppy to the card - and then remembered I was going to ink blend some color around it - too late:-(  So this morning, I used some DI speckled egg ink and did a little watercolor wash around it.  Added a few sequins with a dab of glossy accents in their centers - and done!

Thanks for visiting today.
