Happy Power Poppy Friday~August 25th

Hello there and welcome!  I hope you have had a wonderful week!  I have a little card to share for Power Poppy's Friday inspiration today featuring the Prairie Cheer stamp set.

And when I say little card....I do mean that!  This card measures a petite 2 3/4" x 4".  I started by stamping my image and die cutting it out.  After coloring it up with Copics, I added a little shimmer with a Wink of Stella clear brush pen and some ink spatters with a Stampin' Up! tool.  I stitched a bit of gingham paper onto some purple card stock, tied on a bit of ribbon and then attached the panel to my card base.  After rounding the corners, I added my image panel with foam dimensionals.  I used a hole punch to notch out a little spot on  my image panel before adhering it so it could snug up to my bow.

I think this sweet coneflower is somethin' else, how about you?  Marcella really packed the detail in this sweet bloom!  :)

So that is all for my card today but some of my amazingly talented Bloomie sisters have created some real beauties for your Friday inspiration....make sure you leave a little blog love when you visit.  I thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you will pop in again soon.  Until then, take care.
