Power Poppy Challenge

It was a beautiful weekend here this holiday.  Weather was amazing and sunny, yes it rained yesterday for part of the day, but that gave me time to craft.  And that I did.  I had the new May digital release flowers from Power Poppy and they are having a challenge with them specifically.  Need I say more? 


In addition, they provided a sketch for you to use any way that you wanted.  It's always so much easier when you have a sketch.  Then you only need to pick out the colors, paper, coloring, stamp, and the embellishments.  Ha! 
I decided to print out the Peony.  I remember them growing at my Grandmother's house when I was a kid.  A long time ago. 

Here is the card that I made.
I started with kraft CS and layered sage and then a layer of DP from nature Garden by Jodie Lee.
The pale pink is from my stash and was die cut with Majestic Elements.  The flower was colored with Copic markers and then die cut with an oval die.  I used Pink Pearls to finish.  Lastly, I used the Pointillism  technique around the flowers with a very light E40 Copic, and then just a few dots with my Sakura glitter pen. You will have to look closely to see that.
 
As always, thanks for stopping by.  I do appreciate all of the comments that you may care to leave.  Have a great week and happy crafting.
