Lulu loves her poppies!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all doing OK. Today's card is another one for my Mum. My sis asked me to make one from her for Mother's Day. I'm really excited to show you this as I LOVE this image sooooo much! It's Lulu Love Poppies....

I coloured Lulu with a mixture of copics, watercolour pencils and lyra pencils. I'm really pleased with the colouring on this one so do click on the image for a better look! Straightaway I knew I was going to use these beautiful papers by MME- Rosy, the colours just complement the image so well. The swirl is a Sizzix die and butterfly is a Die-namic die. Sentiment is by Elzybells.
