What You Do Makes a Difference

I have another gorgeous Zinnia card to show you...it's part of the daily challenge over at Flourishes.  Today's Challenge is a sketch...a great one too!  Remember if you participate in the Sketch Challenge you could win the entire June New Release!

I colored up these pretty stems of Zinnias with Copic Markers, and also colored up a smaller single zinnia from the set from the set in the background layer and colored those up with the same markers, adding a simple line around the images with a Copic Multiliner, accenting it with black rhinestones.  I stamped the sentiment (isn't it a wonderful one?) with Memento Rose Bud Ink and then added the raspberry crochet ribbon through a Finishing Touches ribbon slide.  I love how this card turned out!


I love how vibrant and colorful it is!  Such a cheerful little flower :)

So jump in on the challenge!   Link your card to the InLinkz on the Flourishes Blog.  If you use Flourishes stamps it gets you 2 entries into the draw...an extra bonus!
