Shabby Poppy Fields

There's yet another fab sketch for this fortnight's Sugar Bowl Challenge...with the 'extra' of 'Shabby Chic'. I've used one of my favourite Sugar Nellie stamps...'Poppy Fields'...and some yummy My Mind's Eye papers (from the 'Penny Lane' and '29th Street Market' collections. I embossed the plain ones using my 'Perfect Paisley' and 'Victoria' Cuttlebug folders, and then distressed all of the edges with inks and my distressing tool, before adding some faux stitching with my Cutter Bee Bug, and a white gel pen. The flowers are from Poppicrafts, and the pearl brad is by Papermania.
