For a cause at Eclectic Ellapu

Good morning, October already so its time for a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, and this time around we've got two fantastic themes lined up for you.On the pink team we want to see your projects created 'For a cause'. It won't be too long until we're all buying our poppies to raise funds for veterans.One of my friends collects for the Royal British Legion and I've been promising him a poppy for ages so here it is.

The poppy is made from ribbon and was a real labour of love as I am rubbish at sewing and my eyesight is terrible so it took ages. I have to confess I did cheat and use a hot glue gun for some bits lol. I made a tag to display the poppy by using a Sweet Poppy Stencil. I applied distress inks and then Maimeri Glassy Gel before removing the stencil and covering with microbeads. It gives a lovely shimmer but you can't see it too well on the pic.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafting from the heart: anything goes
Creative Fingers: anything goes
Not just cards: anything goes
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today
