Yellow Roses

Here's another card for the Peep of the Week challenge at Power Poppy.  The weather has really warmed up and the roses are blooming madly in our garden and vases of beautiful smelling flowers fill my house (lucky me!)  So I thought I would use this gorgeous Power Poppy digital image titled "Arranging Roses" for this weeks challenge.  I started with background paper from BoBunny's Country Garden Collection and layered it onto blue cardstock.  Next I cut a strip of yellow cardstock, adhered it to the bottom and wrapped it with blue ribbon.  The sentiment is from Power Poppy's Dynamic Duos set and was stamped onto white cardstock and die cut with a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two die. I coloured the image with copics and die cut it with a Spellbinders Classic Oval.  Then I die cut blue cardstock with a Spellbinders Elegant Ovals die and popped the image piece on top with foam tape. Finally I die cut the butterfly with a Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterfly Mini die, added some tiny black pearls for the body and finished off with a tiny blue bow.

Copic Colours used were:  Y11, Y15, B000, B00, B02, R24, R27, G43, G46, C1, C3, C5.

Thanks for visiting!
