Zinnias!

My friend Carol and I got together last week, and she shared these stamped flower images with me.  With snow flying here soon after, they were begging to be used, and so I made a card for 2 challenges celebrating Winnie & Walter's 2nd Birthday Bash.


supplies: white, black, and Green Apple cardstock, Stampendous Zinnia, Prismacolor watercolor pencils, Spectrum Aqua and Zig Clean Color markers, water, Winnie & Walter In a Word: Happy cutaway and The Big, the Bold and the Happy stamp set

Doesn't this remind you of a seed packet?  My photo doesn't show it very well, but the yellow flower is stamped on the white panel, the orange one is secured only in the center, and I popped the pink one up.  

This works for Kelly's Over the Edge Challenge, and also for Lydia's Floral Challenge.

Fabulous! I had to come see the zinnia! I needed the happy bright colors!

Cynthia Daugherty said...

Wouldn't that be a fun idea, to make a card like this and send a real seed packet as a little gift along with the card?!

I find myself drawn to your posts over and over, Lin. You are so talented. Have always loved zinnias and they turned out beautiful on this card.

Lin said...

Such sweet words, Merry, thank you so much!

Oh, Lin, your card definitely reminds me of a seed packet, and what a gorgeous card! I love your colors and how you've popped the two up so wonderfully! Have added it to my "wish list" and hit "notify me" at SSS. Hugs, sweet friend! You truly are an inspiration, and I'm so glad you had fun with a friend stamping!

Oh Lin you really have shown these zinnias off beautifully - it's years since I have seen any IRL!

Hi Lin! Oh I love your seed packet card! It's so bright and cheerful. And your flower going off the edge, on the side where the white panel is also going off the edge, looks wonderful. So glad you could join the celebration at Winnie & Walter!
