Surprise!!! Happy 1st Birthday


Surprise!!! Did you hear? Power Poppy is 1 year old today! My goodness.... this year went by FAST! There is a whole bunch of fun over on the Power Poppy Blog in celebration for our 1 year birthday. In fact, if you click HERE you can find out how you can win $100 gift certificate to the Power Poppy Store. YES I said $100 smackers! Not to mention all the other FUN we have going on over there. So make sure to take a peek on over at the PP Blog!


Before I share with you the details on my birthday card, I wanted to say a little something to the incredible Marcy aka Marcy Poppins. Wow... I say this every time I open your package of stamps I just ordered and think... it can't get any better than this. Seriously, Marcy you have the artistic talent to bring flowers to a whole new level and it amazes me each set. The attention to each petals detail are awesome and the sweet little creatures you add as of late make me smile. Truly your gift to draw is effecting everyone and energizing for all. Your HUGE heart and encouraging words not only for us but your readers is wonderful and not something everyone does. I know I appreciate all you do!  I LOVE that you are so willing to share your inspiration behind your art work and what inspires your designs. It is truly an honor to work for you girlie. Enjoy and congrats on your 1st birthday surprise!  Big hugs!
Onto my card....


I felt the need to go with one of the very first stamp sets that PP released in their debut, Azaleas. This flower stole my heart from the get go. I have stamped them on white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. I then cut around the edges leaving a little bit of white space and mounted up on dimensionals. A spellbinders decorative edge with a birthday sentiment from Dynamic Duos Peonies and Tulips stamp set. Added a few sequins and voila! Happy Birthday Hopping and FUN!

Oh, Stacy, what a beautiful card to celebrate Power Poppy's FIRST birthday! Woohoo!! It's flown by, for sure!! And what a ride it has been! I totally agree with what you've said and so love everything that Marcy has drawn...such amazing gifts she has, and I love her joy and inspiration that she shares about each image and set she draws! Totally unknown in this business, and what a blessing! I love your card and love that you've used one of the very first stamp sets...it's gorgeous and beautifully colored and fussy cut!

You pulled out all the stops for this one, Stacy! Pink and green is probably my favorite color combo for flower cards, and then you went and used one of my favorites of Marcy's images, and as if that wasn't enough, one of my favorite border dies, too! Beautiful coloring and gorgeous card!
