Celebrate the Season!

Hello all! Hope your week is ending on a high note! I have to tell you, I am looking forward to a little down time this weekend! ;-)

Being that it's Friday, that means the Bloom Brigade is here to share a little Power Poppy goodness! Even though Power Poppy just released some AMAZING digi stamps HERE, I decided I really need to keep going on my Christmas cards! So, here's my card!

I picked up the Bough Wow Wow stamp set for this one! The beauty of this card is the fact that the image is one I actually colored up a few weeks back during some coffee talk with my mom. I stamped using Espresso Truffle Memento ink and then, grabbed a WHOLE BUNCH of Copic markers! Here are the colors I used: B00, B02, B04, YG28, YG26, YG21, G20, G43, G40, G46, R20, R24, R27, V01, V04, V06, Y21, Y35, Y38, YR0000, E42 and BG0000. 

My image was cut out with Majestic Labels Twenty Five and the rest.... is just matting it all up! I actually found my card base in a package on clearance at Michaels -- I loved the mod design and the fact that the pack came with five different colors! I added a strip of decorative red, a strip of gold bling, some May Arts ribbon, gold cording and then a Stampin' Up button! I needed (of course) a little extra razz-a-mat-azz, so I added some glitter glue (Stickles Diamond), on to the berries. See?

And that, my friend, is it! A colorful card ushering in Christmas well wishes! I'm not the only "Bloomer" sharing the fabulous illustrations from Power Poppy, check out these ladies creations too!
