So I decided to do what I love to do best, take a digital image, this time I chose the Climbing Clemantis and blow it up super large, I used a sentiment from the Cuppa Buttercups digital set and painted it all with my watercolours!

I have a love for painting florals, I have not had much of a chance to do many of them lately, but that doesn’t change how much I love them!!

Check out our Bloom Brigade and Instant Gardener Team creations and heartfelt words as they help celebrate this happy and beautiful couple!
If you would like to leave Marcy a congrats note hop back over to the Power Poppy Blog, she reads absolutely every comment left on that blog!
