Circles meets A Day for Daisies

The challenge on Less is More this week is for "Circles". I had already got this card planned in my mind for the Day for Daisies challenge, but decided to add the extra poppy circles to fit with LIM. I am quite pleased with the outcome. Day for Daises are new to me and I have fallen in love with their images.

The Day for Daisies challenge is for a trio of cards, so using the free images kindly supplied here are the other two cards.
Last week on LIM someone had used the Waltzing-mouse frame stamps, well I couldn't resist. They came yesterday and I used one right away for this card.
The card below uses a freebie sentiment from Create with TLC.
Ok off for a rest now. Spent all day yesterday and part of today decorating.

Fantastic cards all of them are great, I love how you made the extra circles of poppies :0)
I love A Day for Daisies, Tammy has a real way with her drawing it's graphic and ethereal all at once, quite a talent:0)
You have made some really great cards and of course you can revisit and try different colours and re size them:0) I Hope you have a wonderful week, Gay xxx

The first card is so wonderful with the colour combo and layout. I have to agree those frame stamps certainly look terrific.

You have been busy Linby! I like the way you added the three poppy circles - they complement the main image perfectly. Your other cards are great too - I always love a broken frame and the sentiment on the last card is brilliant! Vx
