Go Green, Plant Kindness & a Giveaway!

Howdy all!  Happy Friday!  It’s a new month over on the Power Poppy Blog so today being the first Friday, we’re introducing a brand new “Power & Spark Challenge”.

http://powerpoppy.blogspot.ca/search/label/Power%20%26%20Spark%20Challenge
In honor of Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year choice, “Greenery”,  let’s create projects featuring green!  

Here is an excerpt from Pantone’s description of “Greenery”…
Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
 
For further challenge details, click here.  Come and participate and WIN a Power Poppy stamp!

Well let me tell ya!  Power Poppy has LOTS of greenery so there’s lots to choose from to colour so I chose to highlight all the delightful herbs from the “Sage Advice” stamp set.  There’s certainly a lot of greenery there!
Copic Colors: V12, V15, V25, BG11, YG00, YG01, YG17, YG23, YG97, G21, G46, G94, E33

Who says a colander has to be metallic?? I thought purple was a nice change!  I coloured the ribbon to match the plaid paper on the card.

So come and have some featuring some GREENERY or the colour GREEN on your cards this month for our challenge.  Here are few more examples from my fellow Bloomies…
