Lockhart Zinnia

Hi all! I'm back from Wisconsin and thought I'd post something bright and sunny here today. I worked on these cards a few weekends ago and am just getting around to posting them! I ordered a bunch of Lockhart goodies from Ellen Hutson's store and had to rip into them and play right away. These cards are based on a layout done by Carol Halvorson HERE..(the front card, on the left). I have been having so much fun coloring the Lockhart Zinnias with my Copics. They are the perfect all-occasion stamps...they can be birthday, thank you, thinking of you, sympathy; anything you want, really!
I used Papertrey "faux ribbon" sentiments for the circular sentiment on this card. I also used a Marvy scallop square to punch the image out, and then a hole punch to make holes in the top and bottom scallop. The paper is old Archivers exclusive Daisy D's floral, which is probably not around any more. I'm frantically trying to use up my patterned paper collection!

These are some 'happifying' cards! (They make ME happy just looking at them)
Pretty colors, love the variety in the frames and the exclusive paper.

Oh LZ, these are just beautiful. I'm sure they are going to sell out quickly. They certainly would be a great Mother's Day card too!

I am so far behind in posting and was trying to comment on everything but it's taking way to long. So, since I last commented I see that you have been having a fabulous time with Riley! I love your work on all of them including the Zinnias! You have a wonderful sense of color. TFS.
