Power Poppy for The Paper Players.....

Hello there: Ok, my friends, here I go again, entering another challenge, this time is for The Paper Players, I feel more confident to enter this challenges now since I learned how to provide the links, thanks to my dear friend Patti Willey who gave me some really simple directions, easy enough for an old timer to understand and, after a few trials and errors, I finally got it.
Anyway, here is my card for this challenge.
The image is from a Power Poppy by Marcella Howley and its called "Sassy Succulents".  I just love this little plants, they are all amazingly beautiful, easy to keep and fun to have around. Marcella truly captured their beauty in this fabulous stamp set.

As always, I stamped the image with Stazon Jet Black ink on Canson water color paper and colored it with my trusty Aqua Painter and this Stampin Up! markers: Old Olive, Perfect Plum (for the tips of the leaves) and Chocolate Chip, for the shadowing around it. I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the image because, in real life, this leaves kind of shimmer in the sun. Here is a close up, I hope you can see it. I die cut the image with Spellbinders Standard Circles and Scalloped Circles Nestabilities dies.

The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Curly Cute", so pretty, stamped it with SU Mossy Meadow ink and I die cut it with a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ribbon Banner dies I found at Amazon.  The background is stamped with SU "Hardwood" using again Mossy Meadow on a panel of Wild Wasabi CS. The brads and the little twine bow are from my stash.
So, there you have it, I hope it fits the requirements for this challenge, as always, I had fun creating this card and I really could hardly wait to post it.
I want to thank you guys in advance for your comments and for visiting, this truly means the world to me. Till next time,
Maria.
