Framed Poppies

Another rainy summer's day today - perfect for spending in my craftroom!  It's not often I join in a sketch challenge, but I when I saw the sketch for the Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge, I had a set of die in mind to use.  I'm hoping the stitched dies count as 'piercing' for the Less if More Challenge too.
I made the frame using two (almost) semi-circle cross stitched dies.  The flowers are Memory Box 'Row of Poppies' which I die cut twice from snippets of red and green card.  I snipped off the red flower heads and stuck them over the green die cut.  The two tiny circles are the waste from a previous die cut I used.

I am joining in the following challenges:

  1. That not quite a circle die works well here Liz and the MB poppies are so pretty and ideal for doing in the two colours, and I love the two little dots you have utilised from a previous die cutting session as the finishing touches. A great card. x

  13. I think all us crafters love it when it rains as it's the perfect excuse to make more cards :). Your card is very pretty Liz and those beautiful red Poppies really pop off of the card. I have the Prim Poppy die and I've probably used it more than any other die that I own, they're so pretty. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
