Ranunculus Fields of Orange

Well there is only a matter of hours left for you to enter the Mad for Markers Autumn challenge and as this is my last Inspiration card for this challenge I have decided to use one of my favourite Stampendous stamps called 'Ranunculus Fields'.

I have a confession that I spent a lot of time shading and blending the flowers...then I just covered it with stickles!  My efforts are now not visible :-(

Oh and I scrap lifted this design from somewhere...and I love it. I wish I could remember where so I can give them the credit they deserve!!
