Happy Power Poppy Friday~August 11!

Hello there and a very happy Friday to you!  I hope this day finds you well.  This girl is so very happy for the weekend, how about you?  :)

I thought I would share a card featuring one of Power Poppy's new stamps Dahlia XL.  

Isn't she a beaut?  One h-u-g-e and glorious dahlia to color to your heart's content...what could be better?  ;)  I am quite certain that if the botanical world had superheroes, this dahlia would be one of them!  :)

For my card, I started by die cutting a panel from white card stock, stamped my image and my sentiment, and then stitched some patterned paper to the bottom.  After coloring my image with Copics, I sponged some ink around, added some shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen and then adhered it to a card base.  Can't get much easier than that, right?  :)  This card measures 3 3/8" x 5".

Just when you think you've seen it comes another gorgeous bloom compliments of Marcella.  As always, this image was a complete joy to color!

And how about that sweet little sentiment, also from this set!  
So that is all for my card today but some of my A-mazing Bloomie sisters have some beautiful cards to share with you for your Friday inspiration.  And speaking of inspiration...have you checked out Power Poppy's newest Power & Spark Challenge hosted by the incredibly talented Tosha Leyendekker?  OH, it's a make sure you do and come play along for your chance to win a prize!  

Thanks so much for your visit today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and until next time, take care!  :)
