*This is my second post for the day. Scroll down for my 30 Day Coloring Challenge post.*
I encourage you to visit Jeanne's blog. She's an awesome crafter. She makes super cute cards, she knits and crochets and she shares the most beautiful projects. She scrapbooks and she also makes some jaw dropping decorative items for her home. Go see for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
During one of our 'conversations', Jeanne mentioned that her mother loved lilacs. I told her that I did, too. And when I saw this Power Poppy French Lilac digital image, I knew I had to use it to make a birthday card for Jeanne. The funny thing is, is that my birthday is in May and Jeanne made a beautiful card for me using this same image! I had to chuckle when I saw it, because I knew what I had planned and I went full steam ahead with my plan.
And here is my card....Lilacs for my sweet friend, Jeanne. (click on any image to enlarge it)
Here's a little close-up for you. I know I say it a lot, but it bears repeating, I just love Power Poppy images! Marcella Hawley, Power Poppy illustrator, has such attention to detail. She placed a lady bug on the leaf. A lady bug! Isn't that so sweet? I also like the open airy feel of the lilac.
I took this photo in dim lighting, to show the brilliant sparkle that I get from my Wink of Stella brush. I really do love that thing!
And that is it for this card share. Don't forget to go visit my friend, Jeanne. And if you do, tell her I sent you. Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate the visit.
