I Heart You



Did you SEE the fabulous news from the Power Poppy blog on Thursday?  Oh my word, wow!  There’s fabulous stuff in store with the brand new Instant Garden Team.  :)  I’m so excited about such an amazing group of new designers showing off the digital release on the 15th of each month.  Yesterday they kicked off the show with this set that we’re also showing off today, LaVie en Rose.   Marcy did such a great job giving so many options and ways this digi can be used, with 2 sentiments or with a different sentiment of your choice.  I chose to combine it with a sentiment from our Springtime Love set because I thought it went so well together.  


What I also love about this digi is that you can use it in a horizontal direction or in a vertical direction as I’ve used it here.   I coloured up the rose and buds in a lovely deep pink colour, and then added the note in a pretty soft tealy-blue, pairing it with these papers from MME Kate and Co.  



Finishing touches include clear sequins and a pretty seam binding bow.  Such a beautiful rose isn’t it?  Marcy really gives us so many amazing images to work with!  Such a delight!  


Here’s the Copics I used above.  




Take a look at what the Bloom Brigade girls have to show off again today with this set!

Absolutely brilliant Christine! I love your vibrant colors! I'm so "vibrant challenged", and you make everything look like it goes together so easily. Your coloring, as always, is spectacular!
