Water color poppies

This card is for my ex Stampin' Up demo. She has a birthday coming up at the end of this week so this sentiment seemed perfect for her. I water colored the Penny Black die with four colors of Zig Clean Color real brush markers and embossed an oval background for them. It took three tries before I was happy with the water color since the blending seems hard to me. I love how this one turned out so I am playing in the CAS Watercolor challenge.
