Hi there and Happy Friday! So, it has been a little while since our last visit...but I am back today to play along in the Power Poppy Challenge with a card to share. I had a lot of inspiration for this card. First, did you happen to catch Stacy Morgan's gorgeous creation several days ago. You can see it here. She used oranges, but it reminded me of those black and white photos where there is a little something in red and I thought these geraniums would work great. Second, I don't know if you know this about me, but I am a huge college football freak! In particular, I love my Georgia Bulldogs (Go DAWGS!) and so red and black are pretty common colors in this house. Can you tell that I am ready for the season to begin? And you thought Big G meant geraniums, right? ;)
This card is made using several simple layers...some die cut, some cut with a trimmer....all to frame up the real piece de resistance.....the lovely Geraniums image. Ya'll didn't know I spoke French, did ya? Ok, I just got a giggle because the thought of me speaking French with my Southern accent....well, it's pretty funny. Mercy Bo Coops, ya'll. ;) Ok, back to business....since I am in such a red and black frame of mind....I thought I would just make my whole card that way! I used Copics R 20's and Toner Grays and added a little Black 100 for the darkest part of the leaves. My papers are from My Mind's Eye, and you will have to forgive me, I do not know which 6x6 pad they came from.....they were some scraps I had laying around. Some stitching, a little die cut tag, a stamped sentiment from the Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips set and some ribbon make a pretty sweet greeting, don't you think? Good advice for us all...Live a Little! :)
Here is a close up of Marcella's handiwork....Mercy, I love this image! She really captured the sweetness of these blooms, don't you think? So, that is all I have to show you but you really must check out what my fellow team mates have created for you....I am sure it will be a lovely display created just for your inspiration! Make sure you leave them a little blog love while you are there too! I am so glad you could stop by today and be checking back soon....I'll have another project to share with you and THEN it will be time for the August Power Poppy Release and can I just say.....you will not want to miss that! ;) So until then, take care!
