A CAS Zinnia

It's Friday and that means another Queen for the Day crowned on Splitcoaststampers. The new queen is Neva aka n5stamper. I chose to case this card of hers. Instead of patterned paper, I am using a K&CO adhesive border with pretty birds and vines.  I chose not to use my nestabilities and just make a 3D zinnia which I colored and cut out. I added a sentiment where her top nestie was placed and that is it!

Recipe:
Stamps: Flourishes-Zinnias
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: K&CO Engraved Garden Border (adhesive), Copics

Lovin your pretty border and that flower is a stunner!
Don't know where pm went but here's a copy...
I've spent the past 2 evenings looking for that stamp! I think the pixies have sneaked in (again) and made off with it! It's not to be found anywhere and I can't for the life of me think what make it is!
I'll have another wee scout round this weekend as its really bugging me now where it could be!

I love it, Benzi! So much white space, really well used, just further accents that pretty zinnia. I love zinnias, and grow them in my garden in the summer. Bet you do too!
