Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge-Buttons

Welcome to another edition of Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge. I hope you can play with us this week. Our challenge is to add at least one button to your card. My image is from Mark's Finest Papers and it is called Poppies, Poppies, Poppies. I adore this image. I colored the poppies with red, orange, and yellow copic markers. I wanted them to look like a tomato red.

I love this image so much I had to make an envelope to go with the card as well. Guess I am on a roll here. I did pop the image up on dimensional. I did color a shadow around my poppies in a tan to match my paper. I am signed up for three copic classes in September. I have played enough with these markers now to go to the next level!!!

Here is the inside of my card. I made removable tags. This was so much fun to make. So let me invite you to join our challenge. I can't wait to see what you make and visit your blogs to take a look. Just a reminder there's a great sale going on at Mark's Finest Papers on discontinued stampes. Grab them while you can at a great price!
