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.

W&W Over the Edge and Floral challenges

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.

  9. 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?!

  14. 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!
