Hello, lovely friends! It's time for another card from me, and I finally got into high gear and colored. Some days are harder than others, and my vision is still a bit blurry (which makes coloring a bit challenging...so a few extra blinks can help). But I was able to color up the newest Power Poppy digital image. I pulled in one of the two images of this new release and colored it, die cut it, and paper pierced around it. The layout is always a dilemma for me, so I ended up using some lace with seam binding and Perle cotton on a diagonal. I used my Mini MISTI to add the sentiment on the base of the card, added the lace/ribbon treatment, and then used thin foam pads to mount my focal image on the card. Oh, I did add some Wink of Stella for some glimmer...and then it was done.
As always, thank you so much for taking a closer look at my card, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week! You are all so special to me, and I've missed you all a lot. I hope to post another card soon...who knows...maybe another one yet in April? Ha! Hugs, all!
