Hello ladies, here is my card for the California Poppies. I got this "Thermo" image of Cali from a free site on-line (I think National Geographic) and printed it to card stock.
Colored and cut out my Penny Black Poppies and then printed California on my computer and die cut it with a Spellbinders die.
I have to say that a field of Poppies intermingled with purple Lupine (something like a TX blue Bonnet), is the most beautiful site! It is typical where I live in the Sierra during the spring.

I'm a SoCal girl and I think this card is AMAZING! I love the colors and the layout. My favorite thing about it is that it represents CALIFORNIA, my home state. Thank you for the beautiful California card!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, what you did here!!! Awesome card for your state flower!! Love how you put CA in the background. I love poppies too!!! Wish they were MY state flower! I think I don't like carnations because they remind me of funerals! Or I just think roses and gerber daisies are prettier!! :)
