This week at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday the challenge (#129) is to design a card around your favorite flower. This was hard for me because I love flowers. When I was in high school I worked in our family flower shop. I worked my way from drying flowers to making flower arrangements to doing all the wedding work. I love all the flowers.
If I really had to pick the "beer" pocket would pick daisies and the "champagne" taste would pick orchids. Since I only have Gerbera Daisies from Flourish (which is not the plain beautiful daisy I love) and I don't have the orchid stamp set - I decided to select a flower that I have loved coloring - zinnias!!
I am totally pleased with how this card came out. Rarely do I used red...so this was definitely a challenge for me. This paper is just too fabulous. I hope you like it! For the layout I used the fabulous sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch. I didn't get this completed in time for their challenge, but that's okay. I really liked the sketch.
I am also entering this card into The Dare to Get Dirty challenge by Lisa Henke & Jessie Knight Rone. These may be the only challenges I get to complete. Sorry, not allowed tell you what the challenges are all about. You need to be a Fan Club Member at Splitcoast Stampers.
