Bank Holiday Monday

Evening all.
What a grotty day its been today, typical BHM. The wind has been from the east so we have a large damp patch on the snug ceiling again. Must get it sorted, a full roof strip looks on the cards as we have tried all the obvious things.
Anyway, Al has been catching up on indoor jobs as fencing in the rain is not his favourite pastime and I have been playing in the craftroom after a visit from little Ben at the weekend.

I've had my eye on the challenge at The Cutting Edge for a while. Its a relatively new challenge but I like using die cuts so thought I would give it a go.

This is my take on the inspiration photo.

As usual I saw this die in the shop and fell in love, then didn't know what to do with it! Its called Wild Flower Corner from Memory Box. I cut it in white card then coloured the stems and leaves and the cut outs from the flowers with Copics . The centers of the poppies are part of the outline but I coloured then carefully in black leaving the edge white. The sentiment is from Spellbinders, Sentiments One.

I shall also enter the following -
