Oh Snap!!!!!

Hello my friends: It's been a bit busy up here this past few days, our grandchildren were still on Summer Brake and my hubby took some days off to take advantage of good weather to do some sprucing up in the yard. Today I have a card to share with you that I will link up to several challenge listed at the end of this post. Here is my card.


Ok so, for the Power Poppy challenge, I looked for a card to CASE, since that is the purpose of this challenge, that was made by any of the gorgeous images from Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley and, I encountered a lot of them on Pinterest and Splitcoaststampers, but I picked this one made by Tosha Legendekker, I just gave it my own twist.
Stamp Talk with Tosh: Best Day Ever ~ Power Poppy June Preview:

I stamped the image from the Power Poppy set called Best Day Ever onto Strathmore multi media water color paper because it's thinner and it makes fussy cutting a lot easier. I used Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. The pattern paper is from a retired line from Lili of the Valley, (I'm hoarding this beautiful paper) and I embossed the bottom with a brick embossing folder from Sizzix, the sentiment is from the same set.
Here is a close up of all of that fussy cutting, thank goodness for sharp paper snipping scissors!!


Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from the same "Best Day Ever" set and the little flower pot is from another Power Poppy set called Potted Primroses.

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges:
Power Poppy "Power and Spark" challenge.
Deep Ocean Challenge "Seaside/Beach" theme.
Ike's World "Travel or Holidays" theme.
Lemon Shortbread Challenge #22 "Anything Goes"
RETARTE 83 "Anything Goes"
Tuesday Throwdown "Anything Goes"
Addicted to Stamps and More "Make Your Mark"(I used water colors)

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
