Pop Goes The World!

Hello all and welcome to Power Poppy's FIRST EVER challenge! Are you ready for some serious fun???


We call this the "Pop Goes the World" Challenge because we are literally finding inspiration by taking a virtual trip to a different part of the world! We didn't travel out of the U.S. for this one though. This is a beautiful sunset captured in Loveland, Colorado by photographer Michael Menefee. Isn't it breathtaking? Did you know each year more than 160,000 cards are mailed to Loveland from more than 110 countries just to be sent back at Valentine's Day with Loveland's postage cancellation stamp? Each year the city uses a new stamp and new verse for the program and it's really quite the draw! So, let's use this little place on the map to spark some creative card making of our own! 

THE CHALLENGE: Be inspired by the beauty of this photo and use at least three out of the four colors we've highlighted. Choose from shades of purple or orange or yellow or even a nice grassy green in your creation! Also, you have to use one of Power Poppy's digital stamps to be in the running! So choose from Gerbera Daisies, Tulips, Gladioli or Peonies! 

THE OFFICIAL RULES:
  • Using the Linky below, link us up to the exact post featuring your card
  • Use one of Power Poppy's Instant Garden Digi Stamps 
  • Be sure to list the Power Poppy Challenge in your post or gallery write up
  • If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, be sure to use the keyword PPWORLD1
  • Entries will be accepted up until May 30th at 3PM EST
  • Winners will be announced June 2nd and the person chosen wins a Power Poppy stamp set of choice!
The Bloom Brigade loved their little virtual trip to Loveland and you can bet your bottom dollar they have tons of inspiration to share over on their little homes in the blogosphere! So, hop on over and see.....
