Flower Power Thursday!

That's right, this week at Charisma Cardz we are pulling out the flower power! I have had these papers sitting here since my scrappy trip to Tennessee in April because I didn't want to use them because then, well, I wouldn't have them! But, this flower power challenge and my Sarah Kay stamp spoke to me and told me that I needed to use the Little Yellow Bicycle Zinnia papers now!!! So, off I went!!!

I used the sketch at Sketch Saturday for inspiration and have to admit, for having little to no mojo this sketch made it super easy to get my card completed!

Enough yapping, here's my card:


I failed to take a picture of my Copic's used this week - bad me! I can't even begin to tell you which ones I used (I have sort of an idea.......LOL) so, we'll chalk this week's lack of Copic's used to my mojo being on vacation!

So, I know a bunch of you who horde flowers like I do (I finally admit I have a flower addiction) so let's see what you can create using "flower power" as your inspiration!

Hope you like my card and as always, thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

Love your card. I love the bold colors and the zennia paper is just perfect.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
