Simon Says Stamp - It's a Poppy Photo Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for a new challenge at
We are to use this GORGEOUS Poppy Field Photo for our Inspiration...
So perfect for what they symbolize; 
Remembrance Day & Veteran's Day honoring our fallen SOLDIERS! 

Moina Michael, an American woman, once wrote these lines...  
We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led, 
It seems to signal to the skies 
That blood of heroes never dies.

Now here is my take, using the Poppies "Special Delivery" House-Mouse Stamp and the USA Colors;
Stamps: Stampabilities, House-Mouse Designs, "Special Delivery",  # HMOR1096
Paper: Bazzill Red Textured CS & White CS
Ink: Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Spellbinders, Cuttlebug EF, Flat-back Dew Drops, Stickles (for rain drops), Ribbons; Dimensional Fabric Paint (for Poppies)
Techniques: Sponging, Dry Embossing

Hope you will play along because one Lucky entrant will receive a $50 voucher!
