Poppy Sketch Challenge #2

This is the second challenge for Poppy Sketches and it has this wonderful Pop of color too. 
These were fun to work with and I will probably use them again. 
I started out with a watercolor base cardstock and used Moonlit Fog , Barn Door and Teal inks and created a BG.  Then I used black embossing powder to stamp the image, Wild Roses.  I cut that panel down and mounted it on to a teal panel that has scored lines on the bottom.  All of this is then adhered to a Moonlit Fog base card. I made the medallion on the bottom, by heating 4 layers of silver embossing powder and then stamping the fly on it.  Cool!   A little tag is added to that with baker's twine wrapped several times.  Three black pearls to finish this one.
Thanks for stopping by and as always, I do appreciate the comments.  Have a great day!
