We're teaming up with PageMaps!! ~ Power Poppy

Hello creative friends!! Happy 2018!! I hope your year is off to a great start!! I truly have no complaints...yet. ;)

I am so excited to share my Power Poppy card for today!!  And, since it's a new month, we have a new Power and Spark Challenge!

For this month's Power & Spark Challenge, we're asking you to "Grab A Map," and get in on some Power Poppy Fun! We've teamed up with's CardMaps to showcase 10 new sketches featuring some of Power Poppy's fabulous stamp sets. You can find all ten sketches along with design team samples HERE  The sketch I used is to the left.  

So grab a map, use it to spark a little cardmaking creativity and then, link your creation up HERE . If you play along, you'll be in the running to win a $50 Shopping Spree to the Power Poppy Shop! But wait, there's more! Becky Fleck, the fabulous Pagemaps guru, is also offering a $25 Power Poppy gift card and all you need to do is leave a comment on THIS post!  The Pagemaps contest closes January 22nd, so hop on over soon! We can't wait to see what you create. 

 Now, for the details of my card. 

I used two Clear Power Poppy Stamp sets:  Pure Prairie Spirit and Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips ("wishing" sentiment).  I cut around the butterfly and a portion of the flower and leaves and diecut it using a Long Classic Rectangle die (Spellbinders).  I used a variety of other dies for some framing and strips too.  

Lastly, the image was colored with Copics.
That's it for my project today.  Be sure to check out the following blogs for some more sketch and card inspiration:

Love how you’ve used the sketch Tosh, and how you oriented the stamp to work here. Awesome use of colour in that bouquet too!

I really like how you matted the main elements with black! And your colouring is just amazing - that butterfly looks like it's ready to fly off the page!

As I was reading this post this morning, I said to myself, "Pagemaps, what are Pagemaps?" Then I clicked and found some beautiful sketches to design cards. Now, I am so excited to get started and can't decide which one of the "maps" I want to do. Maybe more than one. Lol
Your card and coloring are so inspiring.
