Cute Card Thursday #127 & Delicious Doodles Special Challenge & CES #1 & Lisa's Celebration Challenge

Hi again girls. back to the normal weekly routine after the holiday weekend. I hope you all had a great time and are fit and raring to go. I am glad you have time to pop in here and I hope you enjoy your visit.
The card above was made with four challenges in mind. Cute Card Thursday had the theme "Dying for a Punch" where we were not allowed to use Nesties or punches or dies but were urged to go back to basic principles to cut our shapes. I used compasses and cut the circles and used pinking shears to edge the red square. Teri at Delicious Doodles is running a special Birthday Challenge using any of her digi images, Crafty Emma's Store where the theme for her very first challenge was "Anything goes" and Lisa at Mess2Magic has a special challenge to celebrate getting to 150 Followers with a theme of "Ladybugs" so I hope the red and black combo qualifies. I chose "Poppies" by Teri and coloured them with my Polychromos Pencils. I used a thick black velvet ribbon to make a double bow as an embellishment but it hasn't come out too clearly on the photograph unfortunately. It looks so much better in real life.
I hope you like this card and have the time and inclination to leave me a comment to let me know what you think of it. I love reading them.
Thank you for spending time here and I hope you day goes well. Stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
