Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge - Use Score Lines

Hi there!  This week's challenge at Speedy Fox & Friends is to use score lines.  You can find the challenge HERE.  Come and join us for a fun week at Speedy Fox and link up your projects using  score lines for a chance to win a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co.

I decided to score my BG with lines at the top, bottom and sides, making a bit of a frame for my image.  I  lightly sanded the lines to make them stand out!  I chose these lovely Poppies from the new stamp set: "Welcome Poppies".  There are some beautiful sentiments in this set!  This was my first try with alcohol markers.   I know I need  practice, practice, practice but for a first time... the image didn't turn out too bad.  I didn't have a shadow shade so I used water color pencils for the blue shading around the Poppies then I sponged Tim Holtz Antique Linen around the paper. 

 I am entering this card into:
