My creation is using the digital image called Graceful Still Life. Oh what a joy it is to color this baby up. A very simple card as I wanted this to be large on the front of the card base. My image is colored with various Copic markers and a simple scored edge.
The base white panel is scored with a little knotted tool and my score pal. Wrapped some white lace trim and ribbon that I tied into a bow. Added some sequins and sparkles to finish it off. Voila!

Power Poppy's celebration of the 30-day coloring challenge is up one piece of the fun. Make sure to visit the Power Poppy blog for the full link list along with a few of my fellow Bloom Bridage's today:

What a gorgeous creation, Stacy! Love how you used the plum in combination with your yellow roses. All beautifully colored, of course. I printed this and began the coloring and then started painting my room... so now it sits, waiting for me...

This is just lovely, Stacy. Love you pastel color scheme and the way you really made those blossoms pop! I am intrigued with how you did your embossed background....I was first thinking you used an embossing folder but then discovered you used your Scor Pal and a scoring tool! WOW....you did a great job! Your sweet bow finishes this off perfectly! Hugs, Stacy girl! :)
