I used another image from the Zinnias set for my sketch.

I pulled my colors from the Green at Heart papers from Basic Grey.  The image is stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copics.  I used some gorgeous May Arts Silk ribbon and tied a simple bow.  I used a sentiment from the set cut with a tag die from Spellbinders.  It’s the classic plain tag with a hole at the narrowed end.  It may be discontinued as I could not find it on their website. 

I used Prima natural flowers that came in a big bucket, all naked, all different shapes and sizes, just waiting to be finished.  I chose 4 sizes and colored them with Copic markers in various light shades of orange and added a Flower Soft center.  I think it looks just like a Zinnia!

The ladies below have creations using the above sketch and more Zinnia’s, so head on over!  Can’t wait to see your creations!
