Power Poppy: Flowering Santa

Howdy all!  Today is Day 4 of Power Poppy’s newest and most fabulous Happiest Holiday 2017 release.

Today’s stamp set features the cheery face of the the beloved Santa Claus and some gorgeous holiday florals and sentiments.

Introducing… Flowering Santa

For my card to day I wanted to add some colour to not only the flowers in his beard but a little colour to his actual beard.  If you look closely, I have incorporated some pinks, purples and greens right into some of those curls.
Sorry I don’t have a Copic Marker list for you as I was colouring this cheery fella on the go at the time!

It wouldn't be a holiday card without some kind of sparkle on it...

Take a few moments and check out what my fellow talented Bloom Brigaders have created for you today…

Thanks for stopping by!  Stay tuned tomorrow as we will be showcasing some sweet treats just for you!
