Poppy Fields

With today being Armistice Day, I just had to use my Sugar Nellie 'Poppy Fields' stamp. I coloured her using watercolour pencils, then cut her out using my Nesties. I decided to keep the card mainly let the red of her dress and the poppies stand out. I embossed plain white card using my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' and 'Flower Fantasy' folders...distressing the edges a little for definition. I cut the flowers from some scraps of My Mind's Eye '29th Street Market' paper using my 'Tattered Florals' die, and added a sentiment from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp.
