February Power & Spark: Love to Sparkle!

Hello everyone and welcome to a post that is just bursting with razzle and dazzle! It's the first Friday of February, which means it's time for a brand new Power and Spark Challenge! Can I get a woot-woot??? This month, our hostess with the mostess is the fabulous Kathy Jones. We all know that February is the 'Love' month with Valentine's Day in the middle - so she's decided to take it a bit further and challenge us all to......

HOW TO PLAY: We'd love to see what you can make with either a Love theme or a Sparkle theme or combine them into a card that shows off BOTH!

Need a little inspiration? Well Ms. Kathy doesn't disappoint! She used the brand new digi image Rose All Day and matched it up with a sentiment from Soothing Sympathy (How could she resist using a  sentiment that said 'Love and Light'?) and then she packed it full of sparkly goodness with glitter paper, rhinestones galore, some glitter deco tape and even touches of sparkly Spica pen on the bees wings!!

Check it out!

Isn't that creation divine? Well, now it's your turn to take Kathy up on this challenge and show us all how you sparkle with LOVE!

  • Use Power Poppy stamps if you have them. If not, it is a great way to win some!
  • Link your creation below using our Linky (please use the exact URL from your post instead of a generic blog address.)
  • Please mention Power Poppy in YOUR blog or gallery post with a link back to THIS challenge!
  • The winner will receive a $50 SHOPPING SPREE TO THE POWER POPPY SHOP!
  • Enter as many cards as you’d like, as long as they fit the theme of the challenge!
Deadline to enter is February 28th @ 8:00 PM EST. At that point, we’ll draw the winner randomly and make the announcement right here on the first Friday in March.

Wonderful challenge and Kathy's sample card is gorgeous. Congrats to the challenge winner, Heidi. (I just added that stamp set to my stamp collection and am inspired by Heidi's creation, especially the exquisite coloring and fun background.)

Oh wow! I was sitting here trying to think of an idea for February’s challenge and as I scrolled down I was so surprised to see my card. It took a second for me to comprehend that I won! Thanks so much, I will be sending an email.

I just discovered your challenge and I'm super excited to be joining for the first time! I do not have any Power Poppy Stamps as of yet but I hope to change that very soon! They are gorgeous! Thank you for the awesome theme and inspiration! I make a lot of love/heart-themed cards for hospitalized children's charity so I will definitely be back to join your challenge again. For my charity cards, we are not permitted to use glitter of any kind (hospital rules) so I am grateful you have two themes! Thank you for inspiring!
