Power and Spark - Become a Bloomie

This month you can put on your thinking hat close your eyes and actually become a Bloomie. What is a Bloomie, you ask?  Well, that is what the designers at Power Poppy are called.

I have several favorites and I started checking out their Pinterest pages to find a beauty.
I found two and I am going to enter both of them in the challenge this month.
Oh, In case you don't know what CASE means.....  Copy And Share Everything!
For my first card, I am CASEing this card from Cindy Lawerence


Power Poppy Good Thinking: Renewal
I love the design and the colors on this card.  I stayed with the design, but changed the colors and I got a much different look.
My card is more vintage and distress looking.  I usually don't make vintage cards, but a project has a way to doing it's own thing, ya know?


I started out with a piece of white card stock, that I inked with Distress inks, in Victorian Velvet and the new oxide Iced Spruce. I used Swiss EF on the one side and stamped the flowers from the set Lilac Time by Power Poppy, on the bottom.   The center is a combination of two Spellbinder dies, Fancy Tags Two and Scalloped Ovals. Just when you think you will never use a die again, up pops an occasion.  Never get rid of any craft supplies.  I put Gina K Design black and gold ribbon through some slits that I made in the ends. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
I hope that I have inspired you with this card.  I became a Bloomie for an hour today, A girl can dream, can't I?
Thanks for you comments, I love them and sure do appreciate that you take time to make them.
