Zowie Zinnias!



Welcome to June Sneak Peeks at Flourishes!  The Design Team has had so much fun with these sets this month and we really think you'll love them.  Today set is just so pretty and versatile, just like a flower study.  And you'll see some beautiful creations today!


Isn't this sugar pot of zinnias beautiful?  It has such a pretty old fashioned feel.  It went perfectly with the Memory Box Brioche papers and the colors I wanted to go with!  I colored up the flowers and the sugar bowl with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, and I used all the yellow pencils I had for this one :)


I added some pretty embossing in the background and on the sentiment strip and then some gorgeous silk ribbon and the Webster's Sparkler as the accent (here are some that a similar in the store), as well as some sneak peeks of some teal velvet ribbon on each side too, a little extra touch of lush :)


Now here is the fun part for you...
