Hey friend

Hello everyone.  We are in the middle of a very hot & humid streak of weather, which according to the weather forecast will come to an end sometime tomorrow as the cooler front pushes through with rain and thunderstorms.  I'll take cooler weather anytime.  The 100 + degree days can go.

Okay, lets get on with my card.  I had this coloured up for a few weeks now, so I guess it's time to share.  This is one of the Power Poppy digital images released a few weeks back called 
Easy Breezy Coneflowers.  As I have said several times, I just love digi images, there is just something about instant gratification once you purchase you have the digi within a few hours, and you can resize to your liking.

So with that being said, after printing this off, this is he finished product:

I did google for colours of these coneflowers - there is quite a variety, and since I had this paper in mind I went with the yellow/orange combo.  The centers are brown tones but layered with art institute glitter  - ultra fine autumn.  I love the way it glitters in real.  I hope you can see in the picture how sparkly this really is.

stamp - Power poppy digital - easy breezy coneflowers
ink - copcis - E09, e19, E33, E79, R02, R05, R56, R89, Y000, Y32, Y35, Y38, YG93, YG95, YG97, YR01

I love that die. I don't have it, but I sure would like to. Okay, now -- your card. WOW! Love the russet tones you used in both the awesome coloring and the card. I'm very fond of these colors, anyway. And when I click for a close up I can see all that enchanting sparkle just beautifully. I love sparkle! I do have some Art Institute glitter and it really is special. I'm so glad you got around to sharing this gorgeous card!
