Natural Beauties ~ Power Poppy

 
Hello my creative friends!!!  I hope you are all doing well and have been finding a ton of inspiration all around you.  Before I talk about my post though, I have to just say, my heart goes out to all those in the Midwest states who are suffering such rigid temperatures.  I experienced a -60 degree (with windchill) day while in college in the 1980's, and it isn't a day I would ever choose to revisit, that's for sure.  I'm praying you all stay warm and safe!!!

Now, for today's card.  I thought I'd bring a little sunshine and love with Spring flowers framed with a heart.  I used Power Poppy's Natural Beauties stamp set.  I colored the image with Copics, and  diecut a heart out of a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" piece of cardstock.  I then added bricks that I diecut using one of Tim Holtz's Mixed Media #4 Brick Thinlits.  I diecut a separate piece, laid the negative over my piece of cardstock and glued the pieces inside their frames.  I then removed the negative diecut piece and voila...you get a brick background.  I hope that all just made sense.  I also added some sweet little Clear Drops that I got from Studio Katia.

Below is a close-up so you can see the brick detail better.
 




That's it for my project today, But before you go, I have a Power Poppy Special to share with you.  The clear set Hellebore and Hyacinth is on sale for $12.99, and the two digi sets Hellebores and Hyacinth Bulb in Glass are on sale for $2.99.  You better hurry though.  The sale is only good through Sunday.

Tosh, I so agree with you about praying for the millions that are still suffering from the cold. It's nice that you brought a lovely sunshine card with beautiful spring flowers. Heard that the groundhog says there is an early spring. Yay! Anyway, your coloring is always exquisite, and what a delightful layout with the heart and those amazing bricks -- nice texture. And I love the fishtail banners for the sentiment. Such a sweetheart of a card! Hugs! xoxo
