Poppies

A sympathy card today to add to my box of ready made cards.  

This poppy stamp is a favourite of mine by Hero Arts. 'Delicate Blossoms'.  The image is stamped with Memento 'Tuxedo  Black' and coloured with Promarkers, before layering on a green mat.  The die I used is Die-namics, 'Peek-a-boo' Dots' which I used with a piece of white card the same size as the white card blank.  After attaching the white card to the card blank,  I used the die again with snippets of green and red card and used the waste to randomly put in some of the holes.  

I am joining in the following challenges:

Well would you be surprised if I said I love the image! I also like the way you have used the border die (I have that too) but never thought to add soured dots to it, great idea. Super creation.
