I love poppies (blog background kind of gives that away!) but I also wanted to make a card to mark Remembrance Sunday. Myself and some colleagues ordered these beautiful poppy brooches from the Royal British Legion but unfortunately they haven't as yet arrived.
I have so many stamps to chose from but this is a set by Papermania. I used ink daubers to get the different areas shaded in different colours cut around the image with a nestie and embossed and then edged with a red promarker.
I'd like to enter the card into these challenges:-
Simon Says Stamp Challenge- photo inspiration-poppy field
Cute Card Thursday challenge- Reds for remembrance

Oh what a shame your brooch didn't arrive Lynn - but aren't they gorgeous! You'll have it for next year anyway. And love your card - that really does look like a field of poppies - how clever!

This is so subtle and atmospheric Lynn, and I love how you inked the mat to make it stand out. Gorgeous.
Congratulations on making the DT too. Well deserved!
