Sweet Poppy stencil

Each year I use this I try a different technique to keep the design fresh.  I'm entering it into the following challenges

Crafty Sentiments Designs  anything goes

Allsorts #279  autumn can be colours, embellishments, scenic etc

Christmas Card Challenge #45  layer it up

Shopping Our Stash #172  colourful time of year

Word Art Wednesday #153  anything goes

Addicted to CAS #49  use a stencil

This card is using the Sweet Poppy stencil using the artwork of Lavinia Stamps.  I used various autumn toned Memento ink pads randomly over the stencil.  I layered the image onto three different coloured cardstock picking out colours from the inks used.  To finish the design I added a few gems
