Power & Spark: Hang Some Paper

Hello Everyone!!  It's the first Friday of the month and that means it's time for a new Power Poppy Power and Spark Challenge!!  This month our lovely hostess is Leslie who has challenged us to Hang Some Paper.....which means, dive into that pile of scraps (you KNOW what I'm talking about) and use 3 different patterned paper (or more) and make a card and play along with us!!  Don't forget, by playing along you can WIN a Power Poppy stamp set of your choice!!!  You can find all the deets on the Power Poppy Blog!

I've used paper from the Spring Bloom paper pad and I had lots of scraps in there just waiting to be used!  I've taken three coordinating pieces to create a background panel layered on top of some Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar and white card.  Around this I've added a piece of mesh and topped it with green ribbon.  I've stamped the Flip Flops Best Day Ever in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (RV25, RV29, YR12, YR18, YG11, YG13, YG17) and cut these out with scissors.  I've created a 'beach towel' by rolling a piece of DP (a plainer piece from the same paper pad) and snipping the edge to create a fringe.  I've stamped the sentiment, also from Best Day Ever, in Memento Rich Cocoa and glued it to the front of the card.  I've popped the flip flops up on foam tape and finished with a few dew drops.

Stamps - Best Day Ever (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, White, Kaisercraft Spring Bloom DP
Accessories - Copics, Mesh, Green Ribbon, Dew Drops, X-press It Foam Tape

Pop on by these Bloomies Blogs and see how they've used paper for today's challenge!
That's all from me today, I sure hope you're inspired to stamp and you'll play along with us this month!
