A Little Reminder.....

Hello dear friends, today is our Reminder post over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGEand this is the card I created to inspire you to come along and play with us in our gallery.

The theme this month is for us to use our newest stamps or dies so I made this card using a spanking new Power Poppy set I bought last December called Pure Prairie Spirit, it has this amazing bouquet of wildflowers plus beautiful sentiments and a pair of butterflies.
I stamped it on a piece of light blue card stock with Stazon black ink and colored it entirely with Prismacolor pencils, I added a few highlights to some of the flowers with a white gel pen. The sentiment is from the set, inked up with markers.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

Stamped the SU Delicate Borders on top, the sentiment is from the set.

I hope you come by THE FLOWER CHALLENGE blog to get more inspiration from my awesome teammates, then join the fun in our gallery.
