Pretty Yellow Poppies

Good afternoon.....still having some Internet issues....grrrr....

Spent about 4.5 hours out in the gardens today, YAY!  I even started some seeds and Poppies were among them!  Fingers crossed!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at Altenew, Australia, Photo Inspiration, Simon Says Monday, Emboss It, Simon Says Wednesday, Flowers and WOW! Embossing Powder.

 
 
I used the stamp and die sets from Altenew, Painted Poppy....I can't get enough of these sets!  Images water colored with Stampin' Up! inks.  I also added a bit of Yellow Stickles to the flowers and a bit of Sakura Glaze Pen to the centers.  

 
I backed one poppy, the top one, with Fun Foam to add dimension.  I tied the Jute Twine around all 3 stems.  The tag was made by using a Spellbinders Tags And Labels die.  The sentiment is by Simon Says, Summer Garden and is heat embossed in black
 
I adore these flowers!  Whether in the gardens or in the craft room I always have dirt or ink under my fingernails.....it is a glamorous life I live!  :)
 
Thanks for poppy-ing in!
 
Enjoy~~
