Allsorts challenge 317

Hope you are all having a good weekend. Today l can share with the world l am a Grandma again - no.8 a little girl arrived yesterday teatime weighing in at 8lb 12 ozs. Mother & baby both doing well.
   Saturday again and that means the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts.  This week my lovely teamie Helene is the host and she has chosen
As Blue as The Ocean
You can interpretate this as you wish - colour blue, the ocean it is up to you.
The design team have some amazing inspiration to share with you over on the challenge here along with all the details.
As it is a special lady's birthday today my blue had to be poppies, love meconopsis they are a stunning flower but l have never been able to grow them.  I have had success with day lilies though when l found a seed pod in the spring l put them in a pot and they have germinated so maybe in about two years they will flower :)
Anyway... here is my card

Stamp - Poppy Border by Chloe
Coloured with copics
Liquid pearls, stickles
Ribbon, slider 

We have been generously sponsored by Stamps Addicts with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner
