Hello all and welcome to a super duper extra special kind of post! Why, you ask? Well, it's only because it is the ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY OF POWER POPPY! 365 days ago, Power Poppy brought sunshine to card makers far and wide when it opened its virtual doors and we, members of the Bloom Brigade, couldn't be more honored to be a part of this colorful, creative powerhouse!

Marcella, you have a way of drawing flowers like no other! Not to mention, you are a super human being too - generous, kind, spirited, and honorable with a one of a kind joy de vivre!! I am blessed beyond words to get to "work" with you and over the moon excited that you've hit this milestone! I know that only GOOD TIMES are ahead with you cranking out the beautiful art that seems to come oh-so-naturally to you! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THIS BEAUTIFUL DREAM OF YOURS GIRLFRIEND!

In honor of this SPECIAL DAY Power Poppy wants all of YOU to get in on the celebration and so, if you click HERE on this post, you can read up on how YOU can wish Power Poppy a Happy Birthday and win this.....

So check it out and get in on all the FUN! 

To help wish Marcella & Power Poppy a Happy 1st Birthday, the Bloom Brigade is joining forces to share birthday creations in honor of this special day! So... on to mine!

Of course I had to have a splash of pink and a little bit of sparkle in my birthday wishes! So, I grabbed the Short Stacks stamp set (I had cut the image out beforehand with my Silhouette Design Software) and then, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers! I used RV00, RV02, RV83, RV81, E53, E55, R32, R35, B00, B0000, YG23, YG00, and G20. 

From there, the rest is matting up! I actually got my hands on the embossed paper that was a part of SU's Sale-e-bration. The polka dots are glossy and embossed and so when you use a spray, it will resist the embossed areas. I sprayed it with Shimmerz Pop Art Pink Vibez spray. I had never used this spray much and man, oh man, a little goes a LONG way! :-) You can see below not only a closeup of my coloring but how the spritz really works! It's glitter based too which makes it shimmer!

From there, I matted my main image onto some sparkly background paper. The embossing folder is From Stampin' Up and the iridescent ribbon is from Michaels. An easy peasy lemon squeezy perky and fun birthday creation fit for Power Poppy's 1st Birthday!!

Now, the rest of the Bloom Brigade has a party of its own for Power Poppy over on each designer's blog -- so be sure to stop on by with a birthday "Hi!" and, don't forget to stop HERE to see how you can win a $100 gift card!
