Hi there and Happy Friday to you! Today Power Poppy has teamed up with the incredibly talented Kathy Racoosin for her 30 Day Coloring Challenge! What's that, you ask? Well, that clever Kathy has challenged everyone to take a little "me" time and just. color.....that's it! Just spend some gloriously quiet time coloring your troubles away.....doesn't that sound wonderful?! You can see all of the details here.
And hey.....have you checked out the latest Power & Spark Challenge on the Power Poppy blog. That amazing Julie has thrown down a peach of a challenge.....you can read all about that here.
My card actually works for both of these challenges! Lemme show you what I created.....
I have a serious crush on these darling bottlebrush trees from the Bottlebrush Holiday set so I thought I would do a quick color up and pair it with one of my all time favorite little sentiments from the Dynamic Duos: Glads and Gerberas set. Since I was sending love, I thought why not make the card a postage stamp shape, so that's what I did! A few simple layers, some stitching, a little sponging and my colored image now looks like a stamp...ready to send some Christmas love! :)
I did add a little sparkle with my Atyou Spica clear glitter pen and then some shine with some Ranger Glossy Accents on the ornaments. The papers are from a Graphic 45 paper pad that a dear friend gave me. Don't you just love those little trees?!
Well, that is all for my card for today but there are beautiful cards a-plenty just waiting to inspire you so make sure you check out all that my sweet Bloomie sisters have created for you. Leave a little love along the way....and a big hug to Kathy Racoosin for the inspiration too! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back soon with some new Power Poppy goodness to share.....Eeeeee! :) Until then, take care....
