Power Poppy's World Card Making Day

Grab your scissors, your favorite embellies and decorative paper and get ready to get your craft on! Why? Well, today is.......

Throughout today, October 4th starting at 8:00 AM EST we'll be ringing in the fun with a full tilt World Card Making Day Extravaganza! Watch for brand new Bloom Brigade hosted challenge every few hours. We'll have four in all, which means four ways to win some Power Poppy goodness! Be sure to check back throughout the day to see what's new! And... SQUEAL! We'll have blog candy to give away for each challenge!

If you're a fan of the Power Poppy Spot a.k.a. our blog, you know Mondays are all about sharing a dose of creativity! You've seen members of our Bloom Brigade host Inspire Me Monday Tutorials to share a splash of artistic flair with all of you! So, this challenge involves scrolling back through any of the Inspire Me Monday tutorials and giving them a whirl! Click HERE  to see some of those fabulous step-by-step tutorials and give a "Woot Woot" for Tuts!

I chose Christine's fabulous Layered Paper Strips tutorial HERE.   I didn't use as many layers as Christine did.  I LOVE how this card turned out.  It is so neat in person.  I used Power Poppies newest release set called Poinsettia available HERE. As Christine suggested I stamped out 3 images but only colored one in its entirety.  Then I cut my strips and used 2 of them.  I popped them up.   

I even decorated the inside of my card this time...
