A Little Winter Pick Me Up

Hello Everyone!!  Although it is hot, humid and the middle of Summer where I live right now, I know some of my readers are shivering in the middle of Winter surrounded by snow.  I'm hoping today's card brings a little cheery warmth your way!

I've actually used two of the latest Power Poppy Digi stamps - Winter Pick Me Up for the image and the sentiment is from Camellias.  I really like this sentiment and thought it would work well with the warmer, happier colours - and besides, life is so much better with friends is it not!!  :)

I've used a base of Wisteria Wonder and layered with white and some MME Ooh La La DP.  Down the side is a strip of white punched with a Lattice Border Punch and topped with more Ooh La La DP and a piece of white ribbon.  The image and sentiment have been printed onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (V20, V22, V25, G40, G43, G46, W1, N1, YR30, YR31, Y26, Y28).  I've cut the bouquet out with Small Oval Nestabilities and matted it with Wisteria Wonder cut with Elegant Oval Nestabilities and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape.  I've cut the sentiment into a notched tag and attached as shown and finished by adding a few pearls to the top corner.

That's all from me today, I hope wherever you are that you have a great week-end and stay warm.....or cool depending on where you live!!  Thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)
