Pansy Love for Mother's Day

It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a fun color challenge for everyone to play along with!

It's funny, I cannot stand the color purple EXCEPT when it comes to flowers. I love purple flowers, especially pansies. The purple and yellow pansies/johnny jump ups are my absolute favorites and so I decided to use this pansy digital stamp from Power Poppy for my card. I colored the image with purple, yellow and green copics (using 3 of the colors from the graphic) and used my Scan N Cut to cut out the image.

My layout came from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches. I stamped the sentiment on a white panel and then embossed the panel with a folder from SU. I added the vertical strips, using some retired DSP from my stash, and then I popped up the image over the strips. It was all adhered  to a purple card base.

I'm also playing along with the Power Poppy Creative Confetti challenge Think Spring. Pansies are always the first flowers to pop up in my flower beds after the snow melts, they are a sure sign that spring/summer is on the way here in Alaska!

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us!
