Hand drawn birthday card with cheery French poppies
It's Poppy Time here in France. The fields and byways are full of them. In 2008 I did the pen and ink drawing that is the topper for this card; it's one of my favorite drawings. Inspired by the beautiful poppies in bloom around me right now, I decided to take it out and use it on a card. This is a first for me, I've never used one of my own drawings on a card, or even posted my drawings here for that matter. Hmmm...maybe I ought to more often, you think?
This field used to be right next door to our home. Alas, it's now gone and apartments have been built there.
Paper—cardstock, decorative papers
Topper—my own drawing
