Pink May Flowers

I made this card today and used a new stamp set from Power Poppy called Simply Camellias.
The flower in the bowl of water was so fun to color.  I used Copic markers, always fun to color.  You can shade the image and make it look almost real. 

You can Pin this if you like it.  I have a button for that.
Here are the ingredients:
Power Poppy stamp and sentiment, Simply Camellias
Sizzix die, scalloped edge
Simon Says Die, Heart Parade
Card stock is from SU and I used two shades of pink
Heidi Swapp Color Shine, Rose, on the top of the panel
Embossing powder Liquid Platinum
Pink rhinestone from my stash
I will be entering this card in these challenges.

Think of me tomorrow as I attend a Scrapbook Expo in Milwaukee with my friend Mary Lou.  She is the only crafty friend that I can actually touch.  I am excited to go again this year, but my challenge for this trip, is to be more conscious of my spending.  I will not come home with something that I will have no idea how to use.  That is my challenge.  Hope I make it. 
Thanks for stopping by, I will let you know how I do.
