In the Frame

I've been having a play with some new stash today - my Pleasant Poppies stamp. It's huge but gives a beautiful crisp image nevertheless. I also added just a bit of colour with a So Saffron Stampin' Write marker. Yellow poppies remind me of my Mum's garden in the summer - it's literally festooned with yellow and orange Welsh poppies.
As I am entering this into the Less is More 'Frame It' challenge I added a die cut frame using my Window Framelits dies.
I will also be entering this week's challenge over on the Dynamic Duos blog

Here is my card

Thanks for stopping by today - hope you are enjoying your weekend. I was in a really good mood yesterday especially after Wales won the rugby, wasn't it a good match?
My husband is dragging me out later to a local club to hear some St Patrick's Day music - hope I like it!!
