The day before I went to the NEC with my LIM friend Chrissie and bought some new stash to play with. But somehow it seemed more appropriate to reach for existing stash and make this card.
CAS colour challenge of real red, vanilla and metallic gold fitted it perfectly, though my red looks very dark in the photos. My theme comes from Simon Says, which dedicated its Thinking of You challenge to Remembrance Day. I gold embossed a SU sentiment onto a panel, cut a Memory Box sunburst from it (which to me symbolises hope) and mounted it on a tentfold card. Added Memory Box poppies, diecut some gold pods for the flowers and tied my bunch with gold thread.
A quick look at Paper Playful shows another few challenges to enter:
Allsorts - poppies, remembrance
Sweet Stampin - poppies or red for remembrance
Delicious Doodles - remembrance, thinking of you
