Bright Bold Birthday Azaleas

Hello Power Poppy fans!  It’s Friday and time to share another “Peep of the Week” creation!  Would you like to become the newest “Peep of the Week” too?  Check out the Power Poppy Blog and you could be showcased on the Power Poppy Blog too!

With December only days away, it’s considered ‘birthday month’ for my family.  In my immediate family of four, I am the only one NOT born in December!  Yup… crazy right!  A lot of my cousins and my nieces and nephews were born in December too!  It’s just one crazy month.
So with that said, I thought I’d share a birthday creation with you today.  This fun and whimsical card was created for my little sister.  She and her hubby live in Ontario so I don’t get to see them that often!

For my card creation, I used the sweetly scented “Azalea” stamp set plus I used the “Happy Birthday” greeting from the “Dynamic Duos: Peonies & Tulips“.

I first die cut the ticket stubs and then stamped my Azaleas using Memento’s “Tuxedo Black” ink.  Then I took a Copic Multiliner 0.5 pen and added some sketched double borders around the ticket shapes to make them stand out a little more.  Here is a close up…


Thanks for stopping in to check out my card today!  Don’t forget TOMORROW is the beginning of our December release and this month, all the images are Digital!!!  So you can instantly grab and create!

Now, check out what my fellow Bloom Brigaders have done today…
