Got this card made earlier today, but had to head out in the wintery weather to take my kids to a swim meet. Just got home after a hairy drive in the blowing snow....so glad to be back safely. Anyway, I wanted to play along in a couple of challenges today, Mixability was to use warm colors in at least 2 media-I used acrylics and ink and the Queen for the Day is to honor shendrian/Sharon. I chose this pretty poppy card of Sharon's to CASE. I kept the poppy image, but masked and stamped some print over it then sponged more warm colors around. I used an oval instead of rectangle and didn't have anything with scallops for the framing. I added a small embossed orange circle and used some gems as Sharon had. My bg piece is from some gelatin plate printing with acrylics that I had done a while back.

Gail, your CASE of my card is so pretty. I especially like the background - I wish I could create such a lovely b/g. I love the oval frame for your Poppies and the script behind them is the perfect touch! Thank you for making your card today and joining in the celebration!
