Poppies and Thanks

Good Sunday morning Peeps hope you are having a wonderful week-end.....mine has been great so far especially since I have some me time in the basement with my craft supplies.

Today I have a card for the Allsorts Challenge Poppies or Remembrance....this was not a hard challenge for me as the Poppy is one of my favorite flowers and remembrance it reminds me of my father in law who was a Purple Heart recipient in the Korean war.


Okay info on my card card stock is from Club Scrap designer paper some scraps as well as the ribbon my image is a PSX stamp from 1995 and sentiment SU's Happy Harmony, colored using Copics and Spectrum Noirs.

I used this sketch from Sketch Saturday #335
and would also like to enter their challenge.

Also would like to enter these challenges:

Enjoy the rest of your week-end,
Hugs
Beth

Your colouring is so beautiful. This stamp is so appropriate for this time of year. I painted a large painting of a poppy and added a "skin" with the Flander's Fields poem on it.

I just had to come see your poppies. I knew they'd be beautiful and they sure are! Those PSX stamps had it going on. Too bad they went out of business. Now they've become collectors items. The prices of some go WAY up on Ebay. You made such a gorgeous card. Your coloring is wonderful. I was born during the Korean war. Your father-in-law is a hero and I appreciate his service and that of all those who have sacrificed.
