Remembrance Day Poppies

Welcome to Striking Week at Colour Me….!  This week we are working with Real Red and Old Olive.

Our challenge:

CMCC Full Graphics-020My card:

DSCN1214Our inspiration photo is spot on today, as it is Remembrance Day here in Canada. So although I don’t have any Remembrance type stamps sets, I really wanted to create a card to reflect this very important day.  So I used the Wondrous Wreath set and some small punches to create a wreath with poppies

I used the current sketch challenge at Can You Case It? as the inspiration for the layout.
