August Power Poppy Hop!

Hello Everyone!!!  It's the first of the month and that means that the Power Poppy August Release is available RIGHT NOW in the store!!!  SQUEE!!!!  If you have a moment before you run to purchase your favourite set, I have a one more card to show you for today's hop.

Today I've used the new Farmer's Market set - I just couldn't help but chuckle when I saw the 'Heads Up' sentiment and the heads of cauliflower!!  LOL!  Lately I've been seeing not just the traditional white cauliflower, but also the golden yellow and purple varieties.  Although the purple variety can often be dark shades of purple, they ones I've seen in my area are much lighter so I've made my cauliflower that shade for today's card!

I've used a base of Old Olive and layered with white and some Fine and Sunny DP.  Where the two pieces of DP meet, I've attached some light purple grosgrain ribbon.  I've used another piece of DP to create a notched tag.  Then I've used the 'Heads Up' sentiment to create another notched tag and embellished with chocolate pearls.  I've stamped the cauliflower and sentiment (on the blackboard) from Farmers Market in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G82, G85, E21, E23, E25, YG11, YG13, YG17, G28, V20, V22, V25, Y32).  I've cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and matted with Old Olive cut with Spellbinders Captivating Squares and attached it as shown.
