Power Poppy June Release Previews ~ Day 2 friends!!  I'm back with a preview of a super fantastic,  Power Poppy baseball themed set.  And let me tell you, Marcella hit a home run with this one!!  It's called Play Ball, and it's full of beautifully fun uplifting fonts, and the images....*sigh*...LOVE the collage of baseball images!!  It's my favorite, although I didn't use it for today's card...I got carried away creating my own background with all the fun sentiments!  I was going to keep it all black/white, but my daughter said I should color the you can see, that wasn't all I colored.  I went to town.  So, this card is a bit out of my style, but I thought it turned out kind of fun.  I stamped all the sentiments with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them with Copics.  I stamped the pennant and "grand slam" sentiment, onto black card stock, with Versafine and embossed them with white ep.  The red baseball stitching was stamped with Love Letter Memento ink.  I then added the sentiment label along the side and adhered it all to some decorative paper, along with some sequins and enamel dots.

Now it's time to visit the rest of the Bloom Brigade's blogs if you haven't already.  They have some fun inspirational projects to share with you.

Here's a list of the Copics I used on today's card:
B97, B95, B91, R29, R27, R20, T5, T3, T1

That's it for me today.  Tomorrow we have some succulent projects that you just have to check out!!

Goodness gracious Tosh -- your design on this card is so eye catching and happy! LOVE it all the way around and while I wouldn't think to add sequins to a sports-themed card, it works! You are a master! :-)
