Black and gold make a vibrant and stunning background to the gorgeous Wild Poppy Collection by Heartfelt Creations. And I love that the new French Courtyard die – I don’t have to find a place for a sentiment!! I had a lot of fun watercolouring the images on this card with watercolours rather than my usual Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.
