French Lilac ~ Power Poppy


Hello, hello, hello!!!  It's Friday, and that means another Power Poppy post.  For this month's, Power and Spark Challenge Julie is challenging us to get buggy with a June Bug challenge.  I decided to use the French Lilac Digital stamp set so I could enlarge the image to focus on the sweet ladybug on the lone leaf.  I love ladybugs, always have.  I think they are such a beautiful red (and other colors, but I'm partial to the red ones), and just sweet with their unique little black dots.  I used Photoshop to enlarge the image and diecut it using Labels 28 (Spellbinders).

There is so much inspiration going on at Power Poppy right now. You really need to check it out.  Click HERE for the Good Vibe 5 post that will surely get those creative juices flowing.  And HERE for some color inspiration with the Power Poppy post Hues to Use.

I am beyond excited to share that I am currently visiting St. Louis with most of the Bloom Brigade and our dear fearless leader Marcella.  I met a few of these lovely ladies 3 years ago for the first time, and now I get to meet a few more.  What a blessing:  visiting, exploring, laughing, and just plain having a good time! 

Want to see what these incredible gals have created today?  Here are their links:

 I hope y'all are experiencing many blessings this weekend also.

Oh, Tosh, this is GORGEOUS! This image is so beautiful, and your coloring is amazing! I also love the ladybug and really love how the petals just pop! And what a stunning layout with the beautiful die in white with the bit of DP and the luscious ribbon! Stunning and beyond! Oh, I know you are ALL having such fun, and I can hardly wait to see more photos. You all look like you are having so much fun! Wonder what else Miss Marcy has for you all! Hugs and love! xoxo
