It's your birthday in Black and White ~ Power Poppy


Happy Friday y'all!!  It's a great day to be sharing some inspiration, don't you think?  And what better way than with some Power Poppy images!  

Today I went over to my dark side a bit.  I colored my images, from the Power Poppy Clear Stamp Set Party Time, with only two Copic color families: Black and Turquoise.  Now, I'm getting up there in years, so I know a lot of people celebrating the birthday milestones that are "a bit up there" if you know what I mean.  So I thought it would be fun to color my packages and cake dark with a pop of color...so it's not too morbid after all.  ;)

I even pulled a "Cindy Lawrence" and finished off the inside of my card.  She always goes above and beyond, and since I admire her so much,  I thought it was about time I did too.  Besides, I loved the sentiment "Bring it On" and wanted to use it with this color scheme...like you're saying..."Turning 50?...Bring it On"!!!!  

Lastly, I added some Chrome Pearl Pen dots to my cake to make them look like edible candy additions.



That's it for me y'all!!  Now, if you haven't already, check out what my fellow Bloom Brigaders have to share:
Copics:  B06, B04, B02, B00, T8, T6, T4, T2, T0

Thanks for dropping by today!  I hope you have a most fantastic weekend!!
  Happy Stamping!

Gorgeous Tosh...the color scheme and the clean classic design pair so beautifully. Awesome colouring on those presents. Beautiful inside and out!

Oh, Tosh, this is a cool and classy card! I know a couple of people who would LOVE this one! I love the CAS and elegant layout and your gorgeous coloring! And how cool that the candies on the outside of the cake are like those I remember eating when we were kids. Had to be careful with our teeth though! Beautifully done, and I know the recipient will love it -- and probably get a chuckle when you add your comments! Hugs, sweet friend!

You crack me up, Tosh! I refuse to believe that you are getting "up there" in years....after all, we are almost the same age....lol! Yep, keeping my head in the sand there! Love, love, love your bold color scheme...it really makes your beautifully colored images pop and keeping your card clean was smart! I think you did Cindy proud with your card design inside. You really knocked this one waaaay outta the park, gf. OH, lest I forget....nice embossing! ;)

OMG!!! I LOVE this... the blue is awesome. The black and white with hints of blue, love it. Great textured background and the silver on the inside looks so real! What a fun card!
