Time for something a wee bit different...

Well it's very wet and horrible this morning so I guess it's time for another card.  I bought this stamp set towards the end of last year and I have to say it is one of the most beautiful sets I own!!  So I thought I would check out the MFT blog to see if I could enter their sketch challenge using this set.

It's very plain and simple but I think with just the wee bit colour, it makes those poppies stand out.  I cut out a circle using the pierced circle die from die-namics and then using distress inks I inked up in blue and green...makes it look like grass and sky. I stamped sections of the poppies and die cut the poppy heads and leaves.  The text and sentiment is also from the same set....oh and I added my favourite doodling around the edges...hope you likey.
