Pretty Good Things

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the sweet and talented Joanne is our hostess with a color challenge, and this one is a beauty! So pretty, I love it.

Well, it will come as no surprise to you that these colors shouted "floral" to me! I settled on a digi set from Power Poppy and colored it with my Copic markers. Slowly. Over the course of three days, lol! I hope Joanne doesn't mind, as I added a bit of "sky" blue in the background. The bouquet seemed kind of lost without it. 

I'm also playing along with the Power & Spark Challenge at Power Poppy, to use any of their previous challenges. I chose the Blow up your Digi's challenge. 

Stamp Sets: Countryside Bouquet, Fall Haul Digi Stamp Sets (Power Poppy)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Lilac Mist Textured (My Colors)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn), Femme Frame Dies (Mama Elephant), Circle Punches (Stampin' Up)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)
