What a difference paper makes!

Hello, friends!

As I mentioned, I have been thoroughly enjoying coloring up a lot of flower cards the past few days.  I had forgotten how versatile they are and how even the same image colored up with different colors or with different background papers can change the whole look & feel of a card! I began with one of my favorite Power Poppy digi images and printed several sheets of it.  After coloring the image in several colors, I started going thru my paper stash for the perfect papers!  That was almost as much fun as the actual coloring!  (I have LOTS of paper!) ha ha Lets see if you agree with my paper choices on each of these!

This first card is one I am sending to my daughter, Melissa.  She has been working long hours & I thought she could use a little pick me up!

This one I fell in love with this paper the minute I saw it.  I actually bought the paper pad for this sheet!  ha ha  Actually, since it was on sale half off, I have to confess I bought 2 pads. The paper on the card above and on the last card came from these packs too so I think I got my $6 worth!

This just called for a simple pink stripe.  Nothing fussy!

I wish this had photographed better.  The grid lines are actually a bit more teal, like the roses.

From roses, I went on to tulips and then to a sunflower!  When you are on a roll, you are on a roll!

Back tomorrow with tulips!



  1. You amaze me with your coloring skills and how much you can accomplish! This image is one of my favorites and I've colored it only once. It's such a beauty and I love seeing it in all the different colors with the variety of papers. You know how I love designer papers! Opening this page is like opening a box of candy. Yum!

  2. Fabulous cards Sherri! Gorgeous coloring and awesome papers! I think you made a wise choice with that paper!
