Favourite flower...

Morning all and welcome to Thursday which means a new challenge at

...this time we would like to see your creations featuring your favourite flowers or trees and don't forget to tell us WHY.

Now, being a country girl I couldn't possibly have favourites!!. However, I DO have a favourite flower stamp and it's Zinnia. Why is it my favourite?...simply because it's so pretty and can be coloured to
 co-ordinate with any backing papers or can be the stand alone feature on a card/project. The simplicity  also means that it can be used for many different occasions.

In this case I used the papers as my starting point and coloured with my Promarkers to compliment (just a little artistic licence with the colours then!!). The die cuts are from a Die-namics Set and the sentiment is from LOTV. Hope you like it.

I am entering these challenges

Stampin' for the Weekend - Colours of summer
Sweet Stampin' - Spots and stripes
AGOAC - Use 2 backing papers

Whatever you are doing I hope it's a good day and I hope you will spare a few minutes to have a look at what my lovely team mates have been up to and play along!

 See you soon xx

Oh that is lovely! Love the colour combination!

I don't really have much in the way of tree and flower stamps yet, but have been thinking about getting some recently... I especially love the new LOTV christmas ones. Probably won't make the challenge, but will add it to my list of "inspiration" :-) x
