Power Poppy ~ Dancing with Daffodils Birthday Card

Hello Friends! Today is your last chance to take part in the festivities on the Power Poppy blog. All digis and in stock clear sets are on sale for 20% off and there is a darling Layer Cake digi set, especially created for the occasion, that is only TWO dollars! You'll want to add that to your collection. Trust me.

Today, I have a card to share that I made for a friend, who mentioned in passing, that she was having a birthday today. She also mentioned that she liked daffodils. I knew immediately that I had the perfect digi set...Power Poppy's Dancing with Daffodils. I have used this image a few times before. Click HERE and HERE to view those cards.

Here is the card I made for my friend...

I printed the image onto smooth white card stock and I colored it with Copic markers. I added Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the snail-couldn't resist!-and I went over the daffodils with a little WOS, as well.

I love my Wink of Stella brush and I tell you what, I always have one on reserve in a drawer, because I NEVER want to be without it. It just adds the perfect finishing touch, in my opinion. To finish off the focal panel, I adhered a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins around the greeting.

Here's a look at the inside of the card...

I stamped the sentiments using my MISTI to make sure that I got perfect placement.

And that is that! Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a marvelous Monday!

Beautiful! I love the glossy accents on the snail shell! Very cool! The flowers are ones I'm hoping I haven't missed already in our Northern home. We'll be up there next week . . .

Woo Beautiful Barb! That layout with the pretty blue paper repeating your little flowers on the ground is striking! Great tip, and extra Wink of Stella as mine is sadly used up! Sad Face! :( So pretty I must Pin!
