The Red Poppy - My Favorite Things

I have a quick share today of a card I've had in my picture files for a little while now. It's not intended for any challenge but made with one of my most loved stamp sets from My Favorite Things called Pretty Poppies. The matching dies make this set a total joy to use.

Though I've made cards with poppies in many colors red is truly classic looking and this could even be a great OWH Any Hero card. Did you know that the Red Field Poppy has come to be known as an international symbol of Remembrance? If you've never heard about the connection you can read about it here.

I hope you have some fun and relaxation planned for your upcoming weekend and of course a little crafting too, if you're so inclined.

Happy Crafting!
