Simon Says - You Gotta Have Friends

Good afternoon.

The theme at Simon Says Challenge this week is "You Gotta Have Friends".
I have used a gorgeous image from Penny Black called "Poppy Poem". I was very lucky to win the Penny Black Challenge a couple of weeks ago and the prize was a Penny Black stamp of my choice from the very generous Julia at Stampers Supermarket. It was easy for me to choose as I have seen this stamp used to make fabulous cards by my blogging buddies Brenda and Sally.
Again I have kept my card simple. The base card is made using Bazzil Dots card, the image is coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and the sentiment is from SU! stamped with Brilliance ink. I have used black Stickles for the centre of the flower.
Thank you for looking.
Hugs, Clare xx

Stunning card, Clare! You have coloured it beautifully and it looks so elegant. I am sure you will use the stamp again and again. Thanks for the mention!

A gorgeous card, Clare. It certainly is a lovely stamp. I have just treated myself to some very similar ones and they're lovely to use aren't they. Again it works beautifully with your cuttlebugged background.
Hope you enjoy the weather this weekend, it looks like it's going to be a scorcher.
