Make it a Tall One!

Welcome to the first official Power & Spark challenge of 2016 for Power Poppy! I’m excited about this challenge because I always love the look of a tall card and that’s what our first challenge is… to STRETCH YOURSELF.... maybe a TALL card or a trying a new technique to you?  Super easy right!?  The possibilities are endless!

For all of this month’s challenge details and rules, click here!  Good luck!

For my tall card I decided to use a few of my favourite Power Poppy stamp sets. The cardinals and their cups is from the “Cozy Cupfuls”, the 2 piece sentiment is from the “So Grateful” set and the bows & hearts are from the “Good Thinking: Love Notes” collection.

Here’s a close up of the back ground…

And since I was having so much fun, I decided to make a second one with a slightly different back ground.

And here’s a close up of the second back ground…

Love how you stretched the use of these birds from a Christmas set! And love both of your very creative backgrounds. What a darling idea and just so pretty, Ally!

Oh, wow!! Ally, these are absolutely so beautiful, and you've colored this precious image so gorgeously! What depth and vibrant colors, and I LOVE the backgrounds! You are so clever and creative - you are the bomb! I love these, and I have got to get this out and make something. I so love these precious birds that are clearly in LOVE! Hehe! Beautifully done, Ally, and you sure made me smile with these! Hugs!

Ally I really like how you’ve combined these sets! Such smart eye-catching designs. The cardinals suit the hearts and arrows perfectly! Such beautiful use of colour too!
