Remembrance Card (Lavinia Stamps)

Yesterday I visited a local church (St.Eleth's Church in Amlwch, Anglesey), which had a fabulous Remembrance display including a whole drift of crochet poppies running from the tower to the ground.  Inspired by this display, I made this clean and simple card.

I masked off a circle on the middle of a card blank and used Distress Inks to create the background scene.  I used the Lavinia Stamps "Group Poppies" stamped in Memento Ink shades of "Cottage Ivy" and "Love Letters".

The sentiment is a stamp by Stampin' Up and is part of the "Sheltering Tree" set, also stamped in Memento Ink "Cottage Ivy".

Here are some photos of my inspiration from yesterday.
