The Stamp Man challenge - Poppies

Most of you know about my Poppy quest (click on the page above if you don't for more info) and Jill and Ian have kindly agreed to support us too - full details at the stamp man challenge blog
I have gone for a very basic and clean look and hoped to achieve a look of a medal on the card. The ribbon is some recycled ribbon left over from Christmas and matched the poppy colour perfectly. The Poppy is a hero arts cling flower . You can't see too well but I have embossed some lines onto the card blank which is one of the large 6 and 1/2 inch square cards - a lovely size to work with. The nestability shape is labels 5 which works perfectly with the stamps Jill has designed - this one is especially for this challenge and is lovely.
I do hope you feel like playing along with the challenge it would be great to visit your projects and if I get to see some in real life too I will be thrilled.
Happy Crafting folks x
