Poppies of course!

I've got a day off today but I need to go to the chiropractor, as the gardening exploits at the weekend have left me in pain still and with a numb leg! So once again I am crawling into the playground Pixies crafty snippets week #79 with this card which uses a couple of snippets for the background and for the die cut poppy. I actually embossed the snipped before cutting out the poppy.  I used an inkylicious poppy stamp to stamp and emboss the background. I used some of the gleams and creative expressions gilding wax over the poppy embossing which is a new A Griffin folder, which as it is poppies, I just had to have! The image is from sweet pea.
I'd like to enter into these challenges:-
Papertake weekly - anything goes
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT - birthdays
Polkadoodles - make your own background

Oh this really is lovely Lynn! I do so love poppies and it's a great snippets card too.

Sorry to hear you're still crawling about - do not let Mrs A offer to help though. She's likely to still needles into you 'cos she's having acupuncture and would no doubt wanna have company as a pincushion :(

Hugs, Di xx
