This card is based on a great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches by Tui Nathan.  I loved the sketch at first sight.  The dilemma became what to stamp!  I decided to step out of my comfort zone and take a run with my Copics.  I won the poppy stamp from a challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ.  Sweet n Sassy Stamps sponsored the challenge.  This is the first digital image I have “stamped” with.  I am glad to report that my HP ink works well with the Copics.  This is also my first image that has been completely colored with Copics.  I spent my childhood coloring, but have yet to master coloring with Copics!  I am sure there is room for vast improvement, but I have to start somewhere!  Here is the original sketch-
