On to my creation. I picked the first sketch, second color theme and the button for today. Pulled out my Zinnia's and stamped them onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.

My Zinnia's are colored using copic collections:

Then I grabbed the beautiful Color Made Easy Collection Emerald Coast for my paper selection along with a piece of designer paper from Teresa Collins Spring Fling.

 I did a little bit of faux stitching around the border for fun. My image panel is die cut using Spellbinders Classic Ovals and layered up on dimensionals. Added a few blush kaiser pearls and an ivory button tied off with some ivory jute. Voila!
Be sure to check out the creations from the Design Team and hope you play along this week:
