Howdy all!  Happy Friday! It’s time for another fun blog with the Bloom Brigade from Power Poppy!

Today’s I’m combining both a digital stamp set and one of our clear stamp sets to create a simple card to send my little sister since she allowed me to stay at her house while visiting my family this past month.   I thought some happy sunflowers might be perfect for this card front!

So I combined the “Sunflower Power” digital set with my “So Grateful” stamp set to create this beauty…

I actually included the making of this card in my 7th episode of StampNation’s “Let’s Talk Sketches” today.  If you are a StampNation member, you can see it hereEnjoy!

Don't forget about our month long challenge still going on.  This month's it's all about the shabby & chic! For all the rules and how to play, visit the Power Poppy blog right here!

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

  1. Ally, what a beautiful card, and I just love the shabby feel to it with the doily die, twine, sequins, and the great stenciled background! Super card, and I know your sister will love it! Hugs!

  2. Very pretty indeed! I like that you cut around the blooms and the sketch is wonderful. So very fallish and pretty!

  3. Ally this is so rich looking...the soft background, to the doily and golden threads, and those awesome sunflowers...this is a beauty!

  4. Ally, what a lovely card, you colored this flowers so richly and beautifully. I love the speck background and the sequences, golden thread and doily are just fabulous details.
    Thank you for sharing.

  5. Wow! That's a work of art and your sis will love it! She's probably received a few of your masterpieces in the past, so she's got a nice art collection going on. Your coloring, card design, background, everything is just beautiful, Ally!
