Power Poppy's May Stamp Release~Day 3!

Hello there and a happy Friday to you!  I am so glad you could stop by for Day 3 of Power Poppy's May stamp release.  Two more lovely stamp sets are being introduced today...just take a look at these beauties.....

Marcella gives us a heart shaped bouquet and her very own toile design with awesome is that?!  For my card today, I chose to use the Always Here stamp set and to really get up close and personal on some of those blooms, I cropped the image into a circle using a die.  Once I stamped and colored this dreamy image with Copics, I used an equally dreamy Marianne Designs die set for my card base.  I also used a Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle for more layering.  I used a Krylon 18 KT Gold Leafing pen around the image circle and then added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear brush pen before adhering everything together.

I cannot get over all of the beautiful blooms (and blueberries!) in this bouquet.  There is so much detail and as always, it was a complete joy to color up. 

Here's one last little peek at Marcella's handiwork.....that darling lady really knows her way around a bloom! :)

So that is all for my card today, but those Bloomie sisters of mine are really going to amaze you with their lovely creations. Make sure you check them all out and leave a little blog love while you are there.  Don't forget to check out the Power Poppy blog to read all about Marcella's inspiration for these sets and the out of this world give away that is going on.....YOU could win 11 sets for yourself AND a friend!!  You can read all about that here.
