Zinnias are A Summer Favorite

 This card is for the July Bring Back Beautiful Challenge at Flourishes called The Beauty of Summer. This month the design team is challenging us to make a creation inspired by summer or a vacation. One of my favorites flowers in the summer garden is just screams summer with their beautiful bright colors.  I love this stamp set by Flourishes which was released last month and I just had to have it!  I used Copics to color the zinnia image and used a sketch from Stamptacular Sunday Challenge to highlight the zinnias. I also used the single zinnia stamp to create background paper.

What a beauty! I LOVE Zinnias and have them growing in my own backyard. They are actually taller than me now and I am 5'9". How crazy is that? :)

Thanks so much for playing at Flourishes BBB. :)
