Pretty incredible, right?  Can you imagine winning all eight....yes, eight new March release stamp sets?!!  Well, let me show you a quick peek at my card and then you can jet on over to read all about how to enter to win!

For my card, I chose to use the Power Poppy stamp set Short Stacks for my image.  For my sentiment, I chose one from Hero Arts' Trees, Birds, and Messages stamp set.  My image was stamped with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics.  A little simple layering with some stitching and this card was ready in a snap!  :)




Those sweet little tulips get me every time!  And what about that darling cupcake?  :)





So that is all for my card today, but my Bloomie sisters all of beautiful cards to share with you so make sure you check them out and leave a little blog love while you are there!  Then...check out all of the blog hopping goodness back at the Daily Marker....there are oodles of amazing cards for you to see!  I thank Kathy Racoosin so much for including us in on this wonderful hop!  I had such fun and I hope you will too.  If you can, try to pop back in tomorrow for another card I have to share with you to introduce Power Poppy's March Power & Spark Challenge!  Until then, take care!  :)
