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…
