Birthday Blooms with Power Poppy

TGIF everyone!  It’s been a long week and I’m looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend.
I have a few family birthdays coming up in the next few weeks so I thought I would get a jump on making my cards and MAYBE… just maybe, get them in the mail on time for those special people!

Here at Power Poppy we just released our newest and sweetest I must say digital bloom… introducing “Dancing with Daffodils”…. 
I think my favourite part of this image is that cute little snail fella!  Awwww!

I wanted to keep my card super simple so I started by slightly enlarging the image and printing it out with a soft grey colour to be positioned on the inside of my card.  I die cut a circular window in the front and a decorative border at the bottom to allow my Copic coloured image to peek through. I added a tag with the birthday sentiment from the “Potted Primroses” clear stamp set as well.

Here is what my image looks like inside the card…

I created a space on the reverse side of the card to write my greetings to the birthday girl.

I'm also entering my card today in the following challenges:

This is so lovely Ally, I love the the tones in your colours too, the orange/purple/green really go beautifully together.

Leslie Miller said...

Ooooh, it's even prettier printed up full card size with your gorgeous coloring added. I would think the recipient would want to frame this! Love the window and tag on the front, and the peek-a-boo border. The birthday girl is going to feel pretty darn special!

I love love love the soft grey. It looks so pretty with your coloring. I have never made a window card like this. It gives your card great dimension. Lovely job Ally.
