Hero Arts orange poppies sympathy card

I had a sympathy card to make this week and they are always such difficult cards to make. These lovely poppies seemed appropriate, and I've kept the card simple. It is stamped with Versamark then coloured with Prismacolor pencils. The blue background is the only part that has been blended with Sansodor. The oranges blended well just by going over the same areas repeatedly till smooth. Shari Carroll has a great tutorial on using coloured pencils here on the Hero Arts website.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenge:
