Poppies - Day #10

Poppies - Day #10!  For this card I wanted to use some guilding flakes, along with one of my favourite poppy stamp sets, which is from IndigoBlu.  I think I need a bit more practise stamping with the flitter glue to make sure I get a crisp image, and if I was feeling a bit braver I might even add some colour to the poppy - maybe I will do that and add an update!

The background was made using some glimmer sprays - I made a bit of a stash of them a while ago, so I am not sure if this is using a Creative Expressions or Tattered Angels spray - will have to see if I can figure it out!

You can't see the beautiful variation in colours in the guilding flakes in the photo above, but I think you can see it here.

I am adding this card to the following: 
Allsorts Challenge Blog - Poppies/Remembrance
That Craft Place - Anything Goes  

Materials Used:
IndigoBlu - Poppy Meadow A5 stamp set
Creative Expressions - mulled wine gilding flakes
Spellbinders - Matting basics A and B
Hunkydory - white 5" x 7" card blank, gold mirror card
Glimmer spray for the background - Creative Expression or Tattered Angel
