Power Poppy - Folk Heart, Peace Offereing

Marcella Hawley has offered her sunflower images free to those who can use them.
 What a kind gesture. Go and grab them up and then create. 
But there is more! 
Marcella has refreshed a drawing from a stamped image that she did years ago.  This image is offered on the Power Poppy website and all proceeds will go to Sunflower of Peace, a non-profit organization committed to helping Ukrainians affected by the Russian military invasion with medical and humanitarian aid. Here is their website:

You can get your image and sentiment here.  
Marcella is also offering a larger print which is 8.5 X 11 for those that like to color 
and may not be card makers. 

Here is the card that I did for your inspiration. 

I printed out the digital image and colored it with my Copic Markers choosing only the colors of the Ukrainian flag, Blue and Yellow. The die that I used is by Marianne and is called Anaja's Square.  I also used a Spellbinders circle die to cut the image and a slightly larger one to frame it before I placed it on the die-cut. 

I used WOS on the vase.  If you squint your right eye, you can see it here.

Me, You are here
