Poppies

In the midst of the preparations for Monday night's Paper Jewellery craft session at the library (which was a lot of fun - I'll share photos of what we were making soon) I slipped in a quick card -
I was lucky to win a challenge at A Day for Daisies a couple of months ago and the image I have used here is one of the digi stamps I won, I really love poppies so it made the choice of this one a no brainer for me! I thought  a simple and clean layout would really make the most of the lovely image so have only added a piece of dp from Marriane's and a contrasting grosgrain ribbon finished off with three black sticky gems. The sentiment is from Stampin Up.
