Hexagon and flowers 2 challenges in one card

O.K. this is a combo of challenges one being for Moxie Fab's Hexagon challenge and the other is Mod Squad's Flower challenge. I must say I have not thought too much about using my Hexagon die set so this was a good kick in the pants to get it out and use it. I used Raisin Boat's Blissful Blossom's poppies flower.I stamped them on water color paper and then used  water color pencils to color them in. I stamped one extra and cut it out and then used foam tape to pop it up on the card for dimension.I die cut the flowers with the Hexagon as well as the aqua and black mats. I found a fun orange printed paper for the card background as well as a coordinating print for the stripe to put under the hexagon. I sponged the edge of the water color paper with black ink to pull out the black,I also did this on the cream and orange print paper. I added 3 small black rhinestones on the side. I stamped the Get well soon ( Raisin Boat) and die cut it with a small oval and edged it with black ink on a sponge also to tie in the black accents on the card. I love challenges they really make me go out of my norm. I like the results with these fun colors i came up with to go with my poppies.
  Thanks for stopping in and checking out my card.Be sure to check out the other wonderful cards on the 2 blogs I am entering this card to.
