Yes, I'm behind in uploading cards to my gallery! I'm going to try to do better. This is the first card I made with Power Poppy's Arranging Roses digital stamp set. Love that you can get many of Marcella's gorgeous images in both digi and clear stamp sets. For this one I made a shaped card (A2 size) and included a layer of calico print designer paper for a dressed up countrified look. My image was printed on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. I've listed all ingredients in the recipe, but if you'd like to see the Copics used, plus more pics specific to this card I'd love to invite you to visit me here: http://lesliekmiller.typepad.com/run...ing-roses.html
Thank you so much!

This is GORGEOUS!!!!! I love the colors you've combined in the flowers, stunning, and your coloring as always is amazing! The red patterned paper gives this a real burst of color and an almost country feel with its delicate pattern, I wouldn't have expected that burst of red but it works so well, especially with hints of the floral colors in the pattern. Great learning opportunity for me, and I appreciate that. The delicate die in white adds a lacy feel, lovely. You really teach me a lot about color--even your beautiful light blue bow is a neat choice and works so well!!!
I've been a big fan of the whole DT of both Flourishes and now Power Poppy, and absolutely adore Marcella Hawley's floral stamps. I've only bought a few digitals (my first digitals ever), but have a number of Marcella's floral Flourishes stamps and plan to buy Power Poppy floral stamps when I can.
Into my favorites this goes!!! Sorry this is so long...

I smiled when I read Joanne's comment, Leslie. I smiled because I continue to learn from you and admire all of your lovely creations. Whether it's paper choices, coloring tips, or wonderful layouts - it's all there. So glad to see your cards in the gallery again.
