Day One: Crabapples anyone?



Good morning and welcome to day one of the Color me Grateful August release! This months release is exciting... but honestly, what release isn't. Right?!?!?  hee hee  Marcy has some wonderful inspiration behind this new set called Happy Crabapples over on the Power Poppy Blog


Stepped out of the normal design today with a sentiment focused card. The sprigs are stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I delicately cut around the image and then popped it up on dimensionals for a corner accent. This quote is awesome! right now this is a breath of fresh air for a friend of mine and I know she will appreciate it. A few simple touches of rounded corners, some flourished jewels and sparkles to finish it off. Voila!

Be sure to check out the Bloom Brigades creations today:

Oh, Stacy, what a beautiful "step out" of your usual! I love the DP you've used with the embossed panel, and the focal image with the sentiment is fabulous wit the fussy-cut sprig of this beautiful crabapple blossom! I love it, and I love the added rhinestones swirling around just tickled being on this card! Stunning, sweet friend, and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the release...and enjoying your sneak peeks! Hugs!
