Hello There

 Today's card features an oversized sentiment as the focal point and some pretty little blossoms accenting the corners.
To create this card I used digital stamps from three Power Poppy sets: Countryside Bouquet (I cropped in two of the flowers and printed them in three different sizes), Everything's Rosy (the oversized sentiment), and Strawberries (the leaves).
After coloring my florals with Prismacolor pencils, I added some tiny seed beads to their centers for added dimension. I also used dimensional tape to pop the flowers up off the card front and tucked my tiny green leaves underneath.
 Supplies and Tools:
Power Poppy Digital Stamps (Countryside Bouquet, Everything's Rosy, Strawberries), Scholar Prismacolor Pencils, Baby Oil (for blending), Watercolor paper, Seed Beads, Diamonds Embossing Folder (Sizzix), White Pigment ink, Labels 10 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Kraft/Purple Cardstock, Hampton Art Layered Flowers Stamps Sets (Amaze/Happy), Distress Ink (Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, Black Soot)

The seed bead centres look amazing! You've done a lot of fussy cutting and arranged it all beautifully with lots of dimension. I do like the diamond background you've put it all on too. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

This is great! Love the Kraft and embossing. So sorry for the delayed comment, just been super busy. Thank you so much for linking with us at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you some encouragement from God's Word in Ephesians 2:10 which says, "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Be blessed!
