Power Poppy: A Little Portion Control

Howdy!!  TGIF everyone! I hope you all have creative plans for this weekend.  I’m off on a snowshoeing hike with my Scouts on Sunday to hunt for a future Christmas tree.  Yes… I said snowshoeing. We got our first good blast of winter yesterday and it’s supposed to continue all day today too!

So being in winter mood, I thought I’d make another card for my holiday card stash.  I never seem to have quite enough made by the time I need to address and send them out.  So here we go…

I used the detailed and delicate “Glistening Paperwhites” stamp set by Power Poppy for both the image and sentiment.  I decided to add a few touches of gold to match the printed “Falala” paper.
 Copics: BG90, BG11, BG32, BG18, R81, R83, R85, R24, YG61, YG63, TG03, YG01

My card today also follows this month’s Power & Spark Challenge for November.  This month it’s all about using partial stamp images.  It’s a simple as that!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  For challenge details and rules, please click here. By participating, you could win a $50 shopping spree in the Power Poppy Shop!

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

Love the fun colour palette Ally, the pairing between the paper and the image is so perfect! A creative way to showcase portion control :)

Wow, Ally, this is GORGEOUS! I love your no-line coloring, and what a gorgeous layout! I always love scallops, and I love how you've cut out a single paperwhite for the point. It's STUNNING (as always, my friend!!). Hugs and love, and I hope you had a wonderful time with the fellas yesterday!! xoxo
