Thinking of Lilacs...

Hello Everyone!  It's time for another Power Poppy Friday and I wonder what the Bloom Brigade has in store for us today!!!  I've reached for the lovely French Lilac digi stamp to play with!  It's such a beautiful image and you can make it any size you like! 

In case you missed it - the latest Power and Spark Challenge is now LIVE and you can play along and have a chance to win a stamp set of your choice!  This month is a STRETCH!
The Power & Spark “Stretch Yourself” Challenge is a DOUBLE challenge: We want you to start by stretching your card canvas by using a tall card format AND then stretch your creativity by trying a new technique or using a new product that you’ve been wanting to try in your creative pursuits! Now’s the time to go for it!
To play along, make sure you link up your challenge card at the POWER POPPY BLOG!

I have to admit, I haven't done a card for the challenge as yet, I got totally side tracked!  Instead, I've used a base of white and layered with Marina Mist cut with A2 Filigree Delight.  Around this I've wrapped an edged sheer brown ribbon topped with blue satin ribbon.  I've printed the French Lilac image and sentiment onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (B60, B63, B66, G40, G43, G46, R24, YR30).  I've cut this with the oval that comes in the A2 Filigree Delight set and matted it with Kraft cut with A2 Divine Eloquence and popped the panel up on X-press It High Tack Foam Tape.  To finish I've added a blue satin bow to the ribbon.

Oh, Kathy, this is gorgeous, and this is one of my favorites images (among many)! And wow, your coloring is exquisite, and this beautiful looks so very lovely with the beautiful decorative dies that I so love...we do share that in common. I love the two colors of card stock you've used - it's lovely, and your beautiful bow is a perfect finishing touch! Stunning card, as always, sweet friend! Have a wonderful week...and keep cool! Hugs!

Perfectly lovely and elegant lilacs Kathy. The dies really lend themselves well to the intricate yet clean feel.
