POPPIES

I've been using the Opium Poppy and Calendar Blocks from 100 Proof Press to create a couple of cards.
I have used Tim's Ornamental die as the background piece and stamped the Calendar Blocks in the background and added the Opium Poppy over the top with archival ink. I have added gold beads to one of the poppy heads for added dimension and texture.
I have added POPPY to jump rings and added a bird using Tim's mini bird and cage set.
I created a second card with the same image, both of which were inspired by the colour palette over at The Play Date Cafe.
I have added the Opium Poppy to the inside of my second card.
POPPY text, heart pins a bird and bow complete my creation.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

Tracy these are gorgeous. As you know, I have a bit of a thing for poppies! I blame it on the Cadburys Flake advert.... which shows my age.
