Welcome to the final day of Power Poppy sneak peeks, and RELEASE DAY! Yes, that means you can purchase all of those gorgeous blooms for yourself right now!
Today's stamp set is called Tiger Lily, and it's a BEAUT! It's an extra large sized flower with the most amazing detail...as if you'd expect anything less from a Marcella Hawley original. ;)
I wanted to do something unique with the coloring of this one, and, gosh, I think I've done it! Haha! It took me a little extra time to achieve this level of depth with such rich shades of blue & purple; but I'm kinda digging how it turned out.

I used an embossing folder to give the background texture, and added some die-cut circles for added interest. I stamped the pretty ferns in opaque white ink on the black circle to help break up all of that black.
Here's a look at the inside of the card:
I kept it sweet and simple inside. Isn't that a great sentiment...and so true too. It's amazing how healing a simple smile can be. So, hey, smile at someone today, my friends!
