Sunflower Power!

It’s the first Friday of the month here at Power Poppy and we’re celebrating with a brand new month-long challenge.  This month’s challenge is all about the shabby and the chic…

For the challenge deeds, please click HERE!  You don’t even have to use an image from Power Poppy to play along.  The winner of last month's "Hang Some Paper" challenge will be announced on the Power Poppy Blog.

For my card today I’m featuring the newly released digital sunshiny beauty called “Sunflower Power”.  It’s a glorious sunflower bloom and bud accompanied by the wonderfully happy sentiment.

Here's a quick peek at my large Copic coloured sunflower.  As you can see, I even added some shadows to the back ground...

Now… check out what the rest of the extremely talented Bloom Brigade designer blogs have in store for you...

Join ME on Monday for Inspire Me Monday where I tell you how I created my digital back ground for my fun and frilly flower!  I have a video tutorial on how I made it.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoy all these new inky creations from the Bloom Brigade today!

    Wow, Ally! This card looks absolutely gorgeous and the shadows make it look so perfectly 3D!

  2. Ally, this is gorgeous, and I love your coloring and even the added shadows! Wow, it just pops off the card! And what a great layout with the small doily die (I need that one too) to shabby it up more. Stunning card, sweet friend, and what a great challenge this month! Hugs!

  3. Did you fussy cut that flower? The sunflower is stunning against the black. Your card is so pretty.

  4. Awesome! I just love it!


Thanks for brightening my day. I read each and every comment.
