Power Poppy December Blog Hop


Wow it’s December 1st!  We’re so excited celebrate by bringing you Power Poppy’s December Digi Release!  Haven’t these gorgeous flowers the last two days wowed you?  The Design Team has had a great time showing Marcy’s beautiful designs off to you.  

Now we’re bringing you one more round of beauty!  



I just had to colour these beautiful Camellias again.  I really wanted to give them some traditional colour in vibrant pink, with deep green glossy leaves.  I die cut it out with Spellbinders Grand Ovals  giving them some really elegant framing.  For more of that elegant and traditional look I added some black photo corners, then satin ribbon, black lace and gingham.  The design is actually quite simple so the flowers would shine.  



Here is another look a the colouring (so fun to do!).  Here are the colours I used...






Today’s we have a special treat too...Power Poppy is giving away an entire digital release!  Go around and comment on all of the blogs today and you’ll be entered to win!  Here is the fabulous Bloom Brigade...I know you’ll enjoy.
