Look Mum, No Stamps!


It's very rare that I make a card without any stamping at all, but I'd die-cut these poppies and waxed them (as they release from the iron they get a lovely schlurpy pattern that looks like frilled petal edges), and stuck them onto a card a bit too far to the right, so I doodled a border to balance, decided not to add a sentiment, then realised I can enter it into Keep It Simple - No Stamps.


I'm also entering it into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.


I've got a bit of a poppy thing going on at the moment.  Back tomorrow with another one.
