Peony Love!

Hello everyone! With another Friday, it's another time for a little Power Poppy show & tell! I am actually showing off a card that I could actually have entered in the brand new Power & Spark Challenge!

Katie is the hostess this month and she wants you to pull out your favorite Power Poppy blooms and make them the centerpiece of your card or creation. If you haven't checked out this challenge, just click on over HERE to see what it's all about and find out how YOU can be in the running for a free Power Poppy stamp set of choice!

On to my creation! I am showing you this little number late because I didn't want my mama to see it before I got a chance to GIVE it to her! ;-)

I am not sure if you saw the brand new digital stamp set that Power Poppy released last week but it's a beauty! Peony Love is a lush peony laden wreath that is just begging to be colored and savored! The set comes with a few sentiments but I modified one of them for the front of my card. I wanted something simple -- To You Mom -- so the the real message could be on the inside.  After printing off the wreath I colored with almost EVERY pink and rose shade of Copic in my stash. I would list them all but, trust me, 30 markers later your head would be spinning! ;-)

Here's a close up! You can see that I did add a little razzle dazzle with the help of some glitter glue! 

And here's a look at the inside. I added the sentiment, plus enlarged and changed the color of the accent flower in this set! If you haven't played around with changing colors and the size of images, I have to say, it really makes these little numbers so versatile! I also added the Happy Mother's Day portion of the sentiment too. See what I mean about being versatile?

And just like the setiment shares -- You make life so very lovely -- that's exactly what my fellow bloomies do, week in and week out! They have some visual treats for you to see over at their places on the blogosphere! So, check 'em out, will ya?

Julie Koerber >>> you are here! 

And that, my friends, is it for this week! We do have a bit of fun coming up in the next few days! Sunday will bring another new addition to the Power Poppy Instant Garden. This brand new illustration from our Peep-in-Chief Marcella is one that offers a little somethin' somethin' for those card makers with grads on their list! So be sure to stop by the Power Poppy blog and see this beauty for yourself!

That's beautiful, Julie. I really love the inside, too. I printed two of these (wreath and single bloom) yesterday, but I'm still so far behind in my digis. Now, if only I could make something this gorgeous...

Oh, Julie, this is gorgeous, and I love how you've colored your wreath! Yes, I imagine you used a lot of colors on this one, but it was so worth each one! And I love how you've cut the outside to pop it over the DP. Beautifully done, and I love the inside and know that your mom loves it dearly! Beautifully done, sweet friend! Hugs!

That’s gorgeous Julie, I love pink and green together and you gave all those pretty peonies unique looks while still being a beautiful wreath!
