Summer Sun for Power Poppy

Happy Friday! Anyone have any big plans for the weekend? I'll be painting our hallway and doing yard work all weekend. Pretty exciting, I know ;)

My goal for the month is to play along with the Hues to Use challenges over at Power Poppy and with this card done I only have one more to create a card for. That particular challenge has pink in it so I guess that's probably why I saved it for last LOL

This Hues to Use has red, yellow and green and I decided to use the digital stamp Bubbles and Fizz, which was just recently released. The image is of Golden Wattle, which is a plant I had never heard of before. I did some research online and it is native to SE Australia and has gorgeous yellow flowers. They actually reminded me of pom poms as I looked at various images of the flower. It is considered a shrub and blooms from August to October. Very cool to learn about!

When I colored the image I went with a more rich yellow, like the curb in the photo. To bring in the red I made my card base red and then also added a red banner. The green was also brought in by way of a banner and with the leaves.

Thanks for stopping by!
