MC Aug - AA - Poppy Thanks


This card started out using the challenge on Rubber stamp Chat and using one of Auntie Amy stamps. I absolutely love poppies. I have two gorgeous plants in my garden - a big huge red one and another big one with gorgeous delicate pink flowers. I anxiously await them each summer. But is seems every year they are hit with either hail or very strong rain or something else that shortens there life... I always sigh!!

I'm using a Thanks sentiment from Quietfire Design. It seems it's the one I use the most. It seems to always be just the right size for my style of artwork. But I so love the other thanks stamps in the set.

And it also fits for a few other challenges:
