Instead of using a lot of cardstock to make this card, I have used a card base and covered it with some of the beautiful poppies. I used a smaller piece for the front of the card and cut some more of the beautiful paper. I stamped the inside with the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamps. It says “Your friendship means the world to me”. It sure does. On the outside I stamped “The World Needs More of You”. I hope she will treasure the sentiment as much as the card.
