Blossoms, Dearie--Power Poppy's Blossom Challenge!

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Happy Spring -- my garden is blooming, and I'm beyond delighted to join the wonderfully talented Bloom Brigade at Power Poppy as we welcome the season with blossoms, blooms, and florals galore!  

We have a new monthly challenge this month--a Blossom Challenge!  All you need to do is link your Power Poppy floral creation to the Power Poppy blog for a chance to win.  

My slimline card today uses the digital stamp Auricula Theatre and its open font sentiment.  

Digital stamps are super versatile!  One of their great benefits is that you can size them to meet your preferred card size--and this one is a big, bold 4X9 inches. 

To me, these simple primroses in simple pots and some easy Copic coloring herald the start of garden season. If you look closely at the pots, you may notice the perfectly symmetrical polka dots--I printed the dig image on orange polka dot paper from my stash, paper-pieced in the pots, and game them a little warm gray shading.  Added some yellow gems from my stash and...boom.  Done and ready to mail.  

I hope you'll join our challenge!

Happy creating!



  1. Sweet and cheery card! Like your idea of printing the pots on patterned paper.

  2. Such a lovely soft card Essie, just gorgeous.
    Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration, stay safe and have a wonderful day.

  3. Welcome to the Bloomies, Essie! I love your card. I also went to stalk you on IG. ;) I have an IG account but I don't use it very often, as I am too old, I guess. hee hee
