From Himalayan poppy to Californian

A little while ago I was lucky enough to be a random winner at Aurora wings and got to choose some of Mitzi's wonderful images in digital form. I love this one she is just so pretty, and is called Himalayan Poppy. I love blue as a colour but decided the poppies would work well in other colours too and as its autumn and I have had some Californian poppies in my garden this summer as well as some pink and purple ones,who knows what other colours she will end up.

I coloured the images with promarkers and decided to keep to autumnal colours, I have decided I would love hair like hers with tones of rich chestnut and pink and burgundy too but not sure how brave I would really be. The ribbon was white but I used the pinky colour trick or treat to compliment the colours I used in the image.

The papers are some I got from a computer fair years ago still not sure what they had to do with computers though but I do love the embossing and sheen they have.

The layout is simple and although I didn't add a sentiment is based on the Sketch Saturday layout.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
