Remembrance Sunday Poppies

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

The theme for today's card is poppies for Remembrance Sunday.  I decided on something a little different, not so traditional and chose this beautiful image from Aurora Wings by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.
I also took the opportunity to try out my new pack of Graph'It Markers to see if I had better results with the reds than I tend to with Copics, and I have to say I was pretty pleased with the results (though I'm not sure you can really see all the shading in the photo, but it is there - promise!)

I am adding this card to:
