Power & Spark JUNE Challenge: Go Ahead -- Bug Me!

Hello folks and Happiest of Fridays to YOU! Are you ready to take flight with a brand spankin' new challenge designed just for all our Power Poppy Creative PEEPS? Well, being that it is a new month, there's a new Power & Spark Challenge and this one already earned its wings! Yours truly is the hostess this month so I invite to take a creative step back and... check it out!


HOW TO PLAY: This little challenge has us in search of digital and polymer winged creatures to help our creations soar! For our Junebug Challenge, all you need to do is use a 'bug' on your card! Just that simple -- ladybug, buzzy little bumble, fluttering butterfly, it's up to you! Just in case you were wondering what Power Poppy stamp sets serve the purpose, I did a little research just for you! Look at all these fantastic and whimsical wonders just waiting to take center stage in this challenge! Some are digital wonders meaning you can purchase, download, print, and color in an instant! 


On to my creation! I had this digital stamp set  -- Climbing Clematis -- printed and ready to go and had it laying on a stack just waiting to be colored so I thought -- no time like the present! 



If you want details on how I created this card with my color "recipe" of Copic Markers used, just hop, skip or fly on over to my site HERE!

Oh, I almost forgot! If you get your fingers inky and your lucky name is drawn at the end of June that you win a......

$50 SHOPPING SPREE
AT THE POWER POPPY SHOP! WOOT WOOT!
