Poppies & Birch Bark

Good morning everyone! It’s finally a beautiful spring day! I have had these poppy flowers on my desk for a while now, at least a year! And I have had a bunch of birch bark  pieces for at least that long too! Similar to the card I made last year, Birch Bark and Roses I decided the poppies would look also look amazing with a birch bark piece and here you are! Supplies and Directions are below!

Happy Spring!
