Happy Birthday Power Poppy!!

Hello Everyone!!!  Are you ready to PARTY??  Power Poppy is turning TWO and we want to celebrate with you!  WOOHOO! We want to THANK YOU, our sweet and encouraging peeps around the world, for helping us spread the botanical abundance and zest for life. Your creativity, love, and generosity of spirit is SO STRONG! We are thrilled to kick off another year of flowering and empowering together.  From Friday through Monday, we're offering 20% OFF all Stamps, Digital and Clear. Use discount code: MARCELLA at checkout to receive the special savings. PLUS, for four days only we have a special birthday digi for only TWO BUCKS! Did you see the cake and sentiment I've used for today's card, well this is the fabby new set (plus one more sentiment) called Layer Cake!  Visit Power Poppy to learn more.

It's also Power Poppy Friday and as it's the first Friday of the month, that also means a brand spanking new challenge hosted by the lovely Christine!  This month she's challenged you to use just three colours (which as you can see above, I'm not playing that challenge today!!) and by playing along you could win the stamp set of your choice from Power Poppy!

Power & Spark - 3 Marker Challenge - only use 3 markers to colour. 
1.  Pick three markers from the same colour family to create a monochromatic design
2.  Pick three markers from complementary colour families  - easier to blend
3.  For the courageous or expert....pick three random markers and colour away!

In my 'real' job, I work in a cake supplies store selling all sorts of cake making products, so of course I had to colour up this beauty ASAP!!!  Now you could turn this into an Ombre Cake with the different levels the same colour going from the lightest to darkest shade, but I was in the party mood and gone the full rainbow cake!  I've used a base of Marina Mist and layered with Very Vanilla (with some orange ribbon wrapped around it and some Wild Wasabi cut with Valiant Honor die.  I've printed out the Layer Cake image and sentiment onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics......LOTS of Copics (so I totally failed the 3 Marker Challenge today!).  I've cut this to fit the green panel and chomped the corners with a corner punch.  To finish I've added a little paper bunting and some sequins for a little birthday sparkle!  :)

You colored this up so CUTE, Kathy! I love it! Now, why didn't I know you worked in a cake supply shop? That sounds like a lot more fun than what I did for 31 years. Hey, I'll still be around and I've always got my eye on you. Thanks for the happy wishes, my friend!
