First of all, Marcella is a delightful person full of life, joy, warmth and encouragement, and she has a passion for uplifting others through creativity, nature, and her gift of writing. Now who wouldn't want to surround themselves with people like that. And this entire team is a good representation of everything she embodies.
Secondly, her designs exude the afore mentioned characteristics, along with being unique and filled with details that are a delight to discover, color and incorporate into projects. Like many of her fans, I eagerly anticipate her newest creations each month.
Now, there is another super talented angel who keeps the Bloom Brigade informed, organized and pumped up for each new release too. That is the one and only Julie Koerber. She is another gem amongst this treasure chest of jewels. I truly believe she is one of the reasons our team works so well together. Not only am I blessed to be able to design along side this phenomenally creative team, I am honored to be able to call them friends.
Congrats Marcy on your First Birthday! It's been a fantastic first year, and I wish you many more with an abundance of success and joy-filled adventures!!
Okay...now a short blurb about my card. I used the sweet little Potted Primrose from the appropriately named set Potted Primrose, along with one of it's sweet little sentiments. I colored it with copics and popped it up in a diecut window frame from Cottage Cutz.
Here is a list of the Copics I used: FV2, BV11, Y02, YG17, YG13, YG11, E15, E13, E09
