Seasonal Succulents

It’s officially one month from Christmas, and today is also my beloved’s birthday!  We’re celebrating at Power Poppy today as well, with a very exciting sale in the store, and introducing some brand new images that are so perfect for this season of celebration!  Marcy is introducing four new digital Christmas images with several variations in each image, so they are perfect for cards, tags and other Christmas and holiday projects.  You’re going to be wowed!  

I chose to work with this gorgeous succulent image, called Succulents and Baubles, formed into a lovely wreath, complete with a gorgeous bow, ribbon, and Christmas ornaments.  I printed the image in a soft teal ink, and then coloured it all up with Copics.  

I kept the card design quite simple, some pretty plaid paper, some scalloped edging, a pretty felt bow and then a few facted rhinestones to match.  Such a lovely elegance to this wreath!  

Here’s a quick peek at the new Holiday Digis that are being released today and news on the rest of the store that’s on sale!  You can choose one set for $5 (and get three different images of it), or get the whole she-bang....4 sets of 3 images each for $12.99 + get 30% off!  Code is BIGSALE.  

Both the Bloom Brigade and Instant Gardeners are joining in today with lots of fun inspiration....

Oh, Christine, you just continue to delight my eyes! I LOVE the colors you've chosen, and your coloring is out of this world (I guess I say that a lot, but I mean it). I love the DP and beautiful card stock colors, and the sweet felt bow is darling along with the faceted rhinestones. Beautifully done and more! And happy birthday to your sweet hubby! Hugs and love! xoxo

This has been a fab blog hop so far. I love your monochromatic blues on this wreath. Great plaid in the background, and love that you can put in different sentiments.
