This makes me happy

Hello sweet peeps,

Thank you for your kind words on my last post and here is my card to show you today which I actually stamped and coloured while I was at the Botanic Gardens on Saturday afternoon. 

I know I could have done better but can you believe it that I forgot to take the acrylic block with me and had to use the acetate sheet alone to stamp. I took a few Prisma pencils along to colour and came back home and put my simple beauty together. Yes, no ribbon, no bling, no nothing - just a flat, very flat card.
I will enter this card in the challenge hosted by LIM this week which is about 'what makes you happy' and this stamp with poppies (from Hero Arts, I think) sure makes me happy. 

Off to do some commenting now,
