Our challenge this fortnight at Ooh La La Creations is "More than one Fold" chosen by Julie.   For my card I have used a beautiful image from the Carnival of Colour cd which can be purchased HERE.  This cd has such a lot of beautiful images which can be used for any occasion.  I thought these poppies were very apt for this week.  I have used a die to cut this card in black and have added gold mirror card (which is a pain to photograph because I kept seeing myself in it!) and then I die cut some Marianne flowers which kind of look like poppies, filled the centres with black beads and added some pine leaves from a Signature die because they kind of looked like poppy leaves!

I am entering the following challenges:

"Poppies/Remembrance" at All Sorts
"Bonfire Colours" at Divas by Design
"Sparkle & Shine" at Moving Along with the Times
"Use a Punch or Die" at Through the Purple Haze
"Shaped Cards" at Little Claire's Designs

  10. Having Blogger issues this morning on some blogs it seems Michelle and he's just not sharing photos so only seeing the thumbnails on the challenge blog, but even from that can see this is a stunner.
