C'est La Vie

A beautiful inspiration piece at ARTastic this month:

Here is my take on the challenge, with the theme of black and white with one other colour:

We R Memory Keepers Heart Attack - Darling patterned paper
Green Tara 4cm Petals - Red flowers
May Arts Stitched Centre - Solid Black 1/8" ribbon
Creative Embellishments Curly Hearts chipboard
Derivan Black acrylic paint
Micador Collected & Co - Text Type Black alphabet stickers
Unbranded dies

I chose RED for the poppies, and also because it's one of my favourite colours to scrap with.

It's also the predominant colour in this month's inspiration picture at Creative Embellishments:

The other elements I drew from this challenge were the title, the harlequin pattern, and of course, using CE chipboard embellishments:
