Glassy and glossy poppies

I love this new-to-me image of poppies from Hero Arts!  It works well with the "Glassy Accents" technique from  the April/May 2010 Technique Junkies newsletter. ( The color might be unusual, but I've planted a "purple" poppy two years in a row--without any success.)

Because card design is a definite challenge for me, I searched the Mojo Monday archives.  I looked for a design that would work with the poppy image I had already stamped and colored with Copic markers.  (My green marker developed a leak toward the bottom of one stem, so I shortened the image when cutting it with the Nestabilities die.)
