Allsorts Challenge 284

Hope you are all having a good weekend.  Saturday again and that means the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts.  This week it is my turn to host and l have chosen

Poppies or Remembrance

When l chose this theme l did not realise how many of my stamps had poppies on them, in the end l went for a stamp l bought recently from Inkylicious. The design team have some amazing inspiration to share with you over on the challenge here along with all the details.  I wish l lived closer to London as l would have loved to see the poppies at The Tower.

Stamp by Inkylicious Poppy Lea
Inks - Adirondack 
Sentiment Stampin Up
Liquid Pearls, stickles.
