Hello all, after surfing blogland and stumbling on a beauty by one of our former Bloomies, Leslie Miller, I thought that Memorial Day was the perfect day to share her creation

As we remember those men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country this Memorial Day, Leslie took one of Power Poppy's stamp sets for a patriotic spin. Never in my wildest dreams would I have looked at the La Vie En Rose digital stamp set, and have seen this.....

But somehow, the creative and amazing eye of Leslie did. Check out the unfurling layers of rose petals colored up in red, white and blue and the stamped stars she added as well -- just so perfectly! The scalloped border and die cut stars are the icing on the cake if you ask me! As Leslie mentioned in her post, she added the digital sentiment "Let Freedom Ring" that is still available as a digital freebie HERE on the Power Poppy blog.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend and just as Leslie showed us, sometimes its the things we don't see in a stamp set that can bring out a new level of creativity in our artistic spaces. Thanks Leslie for showing us what's possible with this beautiful illustration!



  1. Thank you for posting for Memorial Day. This card is beyond amazing. I too, in my wildest dreams would not have come up with this idea. If you would like to send it to someone who would cherish it, I can send you an address:)

  2. This card is absolutely stunning. Thank you for sharing. Mary L Schreiber

  3. Oh my goodness what a gorgeous card by Leslie. Those stars on the rose...........wOW. I snatched up the freebie sentiments Thank you!

  4. Julie, thank you for a wonderful post for Memorial Day! I hope we always remember ultimate sacrifice made to defend our freedom and liberty -- and remember the families of those who were lost. And, wow, I'm so glad you shared this amazing card by Leslie. I've seen it on her blog, but it sure had to be "front-stage" for Memorial and is amazing! How she added the stars from the stamp set and used the wonderful freebie sentiment...and then her coloring! Well, "WOW" says it all. She is amazing, and I love this card and her creativity! Big hugs to all!
