Power and Spark - Sympathy

Hello Everyone!  Today is the first Friday in August and you know what that's time for a NEW Power Poppy Power and Spark Challenge!  This month our lovely hostess is JULIE who has challenged us to C.S.I!!  No, it’s not what you think. We’re not on the case – we ARE CASE-ing. We are challenging YOU to Copy, Steal, Inspire! All you need to do is pick a Power Poppy creation somewhere in blog land by any designer and be inspired by it. Then, create your own spin on the original design! Just that simple!

So who was my Muse for today's challenge???  It was CINDY!  I loved her card from June 3rd and changed up the image and colour palette but kept the style and layout.  You can find Cindy's card HERE!

I've used a white base and then added layers of white and FabScraps Enchantment DP across the bottom and wrapped some ribbon around it.  I've stamped the flower image from Soothing Sympathy in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (BV31, BV34, BV25, V25, G40, G43, G46, E21).  I've cut this out with Small Circle Nestabilities and matted with blue card cut with Large Circle Nestabilities and popped it up on X-press It High Tack Foam Tape.  The sentiment from Soothing Sympathy has been stamped directly onto the card in black and I've finished by adding a few pearls and a bow to the ribbon.

Stamps - Soothing Sympathy (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, FabScraps Enchantment DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Small and Large Circle Nestaiblities, White Pearls, White Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, X-press It High Tack Foam Tape

Now, it's not just Power Poppy Friday - because it's the 5th of the month it's also NEW DIGI DAY!!  The Instant Gardeners are joining in the fun and showcasing a new Digi!!  Want to see what the rest of the team have been cooking up and who has inspired them this month?  Pop by these blogs and have a peek!

That's all from me today, thanks for popping in to say hello and hope you are inspired to play along this month - we can't wait to see what you create!  :)
