Sending Peony Love!

Hello Power Poppy fans!  I hope you’re having a fabulous Friday!

Today is the first Friday in May so that means a brand new Power & Spark Challenge over on the Power Poppy Blog! This month’s theme is April Showers Bring... "May Flowers” and what that means is that you have to create a card using at least one bloom on it and share with us on the blog.  Super easy challenge this month.

For further Power & Spark Challenge details, click here.

So blooms it is!  I chose to use the newly release digital stamp, “Peony Love”. This new digital stamp set includes two stunning peony images and 2 awesome sentiments.

And here it is… I chose to keep my card super simple today and just focus on the blooms…
Copics: YR01, YR02, R02, YG21, YG23, YG95, BV31, BV23

I also pulled in my clear stamp set, “Potted Primroses” and stamped out a little greeting for my banner.

For my card design today, I took a cue from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge for this week and flip flopped my version... click the image below to take you to their blog.

 Now, off you go and check out what the amazing Bloom Brigade has put together for you today using some blooms…
