   The challenge starting today at Crafty Cardmakers invites you to use punches and/or dies. I have used dies and a CD ROM from Tattered Lace called Charisma Poppy.
   I wrapped three rows of narrow sparkly ribbon round paper printed using the CD ROM and then matted and layered this onto black and then white card. After making up the poppy decoupage, having used the CD ROM and dies, I attached it to an oval cut from white card using a Tattered Lace die. This I matted onto an oval cut from black card fixing it at a slight  and then attached it to the card. I glued a small red bow at the base of the poppies. The sentiment was made in a similar way using two smaller dies and peel offs.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Ooh La La Creations - in the country
   The Crazy Challenge - ribbons
   Crafty Ribbons - fabulous flowers
   Crafty Boots - ribbon or lace
   Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper - anything goes
