Happy Power Poppy Friday!

Hello there and a very happy Friday to you!  I have a super quick post to share with you today featuring Power Poppy's new for June Power & Spark challenge.  This month's hostess is the amazingly talented and super sweet Julie Koerber!  You can read all of the details here.

Is that not the cutest challenge idea?  :)  So for my card, I ended up using three different stamp sets...Dynamic Duos: Glads and Gerberas, Nice Things to Say, and for my little bee image, Burst of Kindness.

I started by stamping my gerbera image, die cutting my rectangle and coloring it in with Copics.  Next I stamped my sentiment, sponged on some distress inks and tied a bit of string around the panel.  I also added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear brush pen.

Next, I trimmed some card stock and patterned papers, did some stitching, added some sponged distress inks and assembled all to my card base.  This card measures 3 1/2" x 5" .  Lastly, I added my image panel with some foam dimensionals.

I just love this image!!  It is such fun to color....that Marcella really knows her way around a bloom, doesn't she?  :)  Here's one last view....

So that is all for my card today, but some of my Bloomie sisters have created some beauties for your Friday inspiration.  Make sure you check them out and leave a little blog love while you are there.  Thank you so very much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Until next time, take care!  :)
