Touch of a Red Poppy

Well it's Saturday morning and that means only one thing... A new Less Is More challenge and this week it's a touch of red.  Since I'd not made my own Mums Mothers day card yet I thought this would be perfect.  Here is the card....


The poppies are made using the scrunch method that Jo showed me at Harrogate although I've flattened them back down again, the centres are gem brads from the sale at hobby craft ( sorry don't know make).  The swirl is Sizzix bigz die Flourish and Leaf and the sentiment was printed on PC (Hill House font)

Hope you like it, I'm sure my mum will

Ps my mum cannot use a PC so this is safe being posted Lol.....
