Happy Birthday

TGIF! The week is finally over and my husband and I both took all of next week off. We're going to do 2 road to head north to Denali National Park and one to head south to the Kenai Peninsula for some fishing. I'm just happy to be getting out and enjoy what I love most, nature!

Another way to enjoy nature is through Power Poppy stamps and some Friday Fun! I'm also playing along with the current Creative Confetti challenge, which is to create a card featuring your favorite flower. That was easy for me, I instantly grabbed a digital stamp I had cut out and waiting on my desk, the image from the Pansies digital set. I adore pansies and violas, they are just such beautiful flowers! The purple and yellow ones are the ones I always grow/buy, I adore how they look in my flower beds and containers. It's funny, I can't stand the color purple except for when it's on a flower, and then to combine it with some yellow? Yes please!!

My layout is from a recent sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I dry embossed the background and then I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a strip on purple to match the card base. I popped up the pansy image for some added dimension. The sentiment is from the Party Time clear set. I am always in need of birthday cards so that's why I chose this sentiment.

If you love this pansy image it's on sale for $2.49! There are still lots of great sets on sale over at the Power Poppy online store so make sure you go check them out and grab all the ones you don't have :)

  1. I am with you Lisa, I absolutely adore violas and pansies. I wish I could color them -- hard to get the flow from yellow to purple. You've done it masterfully! Enjoy your road trip with your hubby and hope you catch some big fish! ;-)
