Bohemian Dahlias



Welcome to our August 1st Power Poppy Blog Hop!  We’re excited to say that all three new polymer sets in our Color Me Grateful Collection are now available in the store and we know you’re excited to get your hands on them :)  

I had a lovely time bringing this lovely little arrangement to life from the So Grateful set.  Isn’t that dahlia arrangement amazing?  I gave it some pretty vibrant colour with my Copics and when it all came together with the papers, I thought it had a real bohemian feel to it, which was fun.   The extras are all about the papers (various), ric rack, coloured lace, washi tape and some buttons.  



Here’s another look at the colouring and accents.  



Here’s the Copics I used....it was a sunny day picture as you can probably tell :) 



Be sure to hop along to the rest of the Bloom Brigade and their wonderful inspiration today!

Hee, Christine it always feels like a sunny day when I visit your blog....your cards just ooze cheer and this one is no exception! I really like how you oriented the image on your banner, and the colors couldn't be any prettier! The addition of those bits of lace, ribbon, and buttons finish this off beautifully! :)
