Poppies in corn

Made this card last night after a struggle to get motivated to do anything, we had spent all day in the garden cutting the hawthorn hedge ,well OH cutting and me doing the very prickly job of clearing it all up! have to make the most of the sunshine the last couple of days, rain clouds rolling over again tonight, and its been the longest day so nights will start closing in again soon! Corn (I know its called grasses but it looks like Barley corn to me !) stamped with versamark and background coloured with pan pastels. Poppies stamped and then stamped again and 3d'd ,same with butterfly(another stamp I came across which had never seen ink, think I got it free with a magazine sub)The wording is from a Stampman A4 sheet which I bought just because it has some lovely nature verses on it.
