Power Poppy Sunflower Digi

Hello friends!!  I am so excited to share today's card with you!  Once again, it's time for another Power Poppy digi release, and today.......it's a SUNFLOWER appropriately called Sunflower Power!!!  When I first found out what today's release was going to be, I was checking my email via iphone, while stuck (seriously stuck) in LA traffic.  Let me tell you, there were no happy campers in that car.  So when my daughter saw me joyfully raise my hand up in the air she was really confused.  She actually asked if I was having a "coming to Jesus" moment.  The ornery child.  I was like....ah....no...I just found out I get to color sunflowers.  Hello!!!!  That calls for a raised "hallelujah" hand!!  *grin*  Seriously though, sunflowers are my all time favorite flower with Gerberas coming in a close second.  Now, that could be because they are very similar, but I'm not going to over think it.

So, for my Sunflower Power image, I colored it with Copics twice and popped up the outer portions of the image (Paper tole).  I also burnished the backs of the flowers for a little more dimension.  I printed the sentiment directly onto the the decorative paper and the rest is pretty self explanatory.



Now, if you haven't already, you so need to check out the blogs of the following Instant Gardners and Bloom Brigade:
Copics:  Sunflower: YR14, Y15, Y13, E44 Sunflower Center: YG05, E49, E47, E44, E43 Leaves:  G17, G14, YG05, E43

That's it for today y'all.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow.  I have a super fun card to share that I made for my Father-in-law's 87th birthday.

Happy Stamping!

Oh, Tosh, what an amazing card! I love sunflowers too, and I love your coloring and fussy cutting. I almost did another layer too with tole and decided against it. Yours is perfect. And what fabulous DP and also the embossing! Beautiful color combination and love the twine and stitching! So glad you were "rescued" by news of this beauty while in traffic. It sure can be frustrating. Thanks for sharing another gorgeous card with us...your work is amazing! Hugs, sweet friend!

Absolutely gorgeous! I love what you've done with this image! Your coloring and the dimension you've created is amazing! The back drop for your image is lovely, as well. That sponging on the embossed oval is the perfect landing spot for this beautifully colored image. LOVE all the little details, too! Superior card!

Ack! LA traffic is no fun! We drive out there every Sunday and it's really no picnic!
