A Pop of Pink

The current challenge at Power Poppy is called "B&W with a Pop of Color." I used a Power Poppy clear stamp set named "Tea in the Garden" and colored the image with pink, plus a touch of yellow (on the lemons and daisy centers) and green (on the leaves.) Wanted to make sure that my pop of pink stood out, so traced the pink lemonade onto pink vellum, fuzzy cut it, and then adhered it on top of the colored liquid in the pitcher and glass. The wonderful sentiment (on front of the card and inside) is a freebie from TLC Creations (

Used a beautiful image from Bugaboo stamps for their current challenge, "Say It With Flowers." Love how the card layout from the current Sketch Saturday really highlights the tulip bouquet. Printed off a bit of scripture on my computer because the card is being sent to one of my favorite Sister-in-laws. (And allows me to enter the card into the current Word Art Wednesday challenge.)
