Our wonderful Winner from challenge 19, Christine has made this gorgeous card for the new challenge,

Here is what she used:

I used Blazing Poppies but with no red in sight!  The backgrounds are achieved with Milled Lavender, Scattered Straw and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks, sequin waste and IndigoBlu stamps.  The poppies are coloured with same inks - the ribbon with just Seedless Preserves.  The black card background is embossed with Cuttlebug Chicken Wire embossing folder, two larger butterflies are dies and centres of flowers are sequins and beads. Sparkle is added to the flowers and butterflies with clear Wink of Stella.

Now onto the inspiration from the fabulous Design Team:
