Power Poppy ~ Friday Fun Day!

Hello, Friends! How's everybody doing? I hope you all are well and taking good care of yourselves and your families. I am not going to shine a spotlight on what we already know is happening in our world because you get enough of that on the news and social media. I am not being insensitive, I just choose to keep my blog posts light and positive. Sooo...let's get to the FUN in Friday Fun Day, shall we?

I am sharing a card I created with the Orchid Cascade digital stamp set. REALLY cute set and very versatile. Two really useful sentiments are included but one can easily adapt it to fit any occasion. And you know what? It's on SALE for $2.99!

Here's my card...

I printed the image onto a piece of Papertrey Ink's Rustic Cream card stock. I really like this card stock because it's not bright white and it's not a yellow cream. I consider it to be the perfect neutral. It also has little flecks of fiber in it that adds a wonderful texture and it takes colored pencil very nicely. I used Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils on this one. I die cut the image with a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die and using a Picket Fence Studios blending brush, I brushed on a little Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. I matted the focal and adhered it with foam tape onto a card base of Papertrey Ink's Vintage Cream card stock and a piece of  Gotta Have Gingham patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. To finish the card, I added a little sparkle on some of the blooms with a Wink of Stella glitter brush and I accented the greeting with a few Ivory Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.

And that is it for me today. Thank you for stopping by. Please visit the Power Poppy blog to see what my team mates have created to share with you. And don't forget about the MASSIVE SALE going on right now. Almost everything is on sale!

Have a wonderful weekend. Stay safe. And I'll see you back here again real soon.
