Flowering Branches by Power Poppy

I was recently asked to make a card for a friend’s niece who was celebrating her 33rd wedding anniversary this week. At first, I started designing a card with hearts and flourishes, but it looked more suitable for a wedding or Valentine’s card. So I went back to the drawing board and pulled out an old favorite – Flowering Branches by Power Poppy.

This image really is quick and easy to color and is elegant in its simplicity. I was further aided by using the color map for this image devised by my Instant Gardener teammate Debbie Olson.

Hope my card gives you some crafty inspiration!
