Power Poppy: Frame It Up!

Howdy all!  Happy Friday everyone!  Today the Power Poppy Bloom Brigaders are having fun with our brand new Power & Spark Challenge for May.

This month’s challenge is super easy and FUN! For your card entry, you must create a card with some kind of frame on it.  Simple right?!?
AND GET THIS!!!  Marcella has upped the ante!  She’s giving away a $50 shopping spree to this month’s winner!  WOOHOO!  So make sure you come and play along!  Power Poppy images are not required but we always love to see them!

Now for my framed up creation…

I’ve been thinking about making this card all week long for this challenge.  I decided to pick a non-traditional frame for my card front and drop some fun little blooms from our Natural Beauties stamp set inside along with a sweet greeting from our Loving Tulips stamp set.  I gave my self a break from fussy cutting today and die cut my blooms using their coordinating dies, the Natural Beauties Dies. (So handy to have!!!)

Now, check on out all my fellow Bloomies and their amazing creations this week…

Allison Copeyou are here!

PLUS… the Instant Gardeners (Digi Team) will up on the Power Poppy Blog today too with a fun new digital stamp to share!!  Make sure you check that out!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoy all the fun projects today!
