New Digital Release – Blossoming Cherry by Power Poppy

Help usher in spring with Blossoming Cherry, the latest digital release from Power Poppy. Paired with one of three friendly sentiments, your composition will be the blossoming belle of the ball. This one is a stunner and can be simply colored with a limited palette. So pull out your markers and get coloring! The end result will be a card that any of your friends would love to receive.

I seem to have an over abundance of Christmas paper in my stash so while rummaging around looking for a design paper, I realized that the flip side of many holiday papers have beautiful plaids, stripes, and polka dot patterns suitable for any time of year. This paper was the flip side of a white, red, and green striped paper from Authentique’s Jolly Christmas collection which is finding new life on a spring card bursting with cherry blossoms. So be sure to take a look at both sides of your holiday papers – I’m sure you’ll find some patterns more than willing to transition from Christmas to spring on your cards and other projects.

In need of more crafty inspiration? Take a look at what my Power Poppy team mates have in store for you!
