Hello! It's time for a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! This week, Beate is our lovely hostess and she is challenging us to create a project using one of Flourishes beautiful FLORAL images. 
For this week's challenge, I made a card for my dear girlfriend whom recently had surgery. 
I stamped the beautiful bouquet of Zinnias from the Zinnias stamp set on a piece of Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock then colored with a combination of Copic Markers. The lovely sentiment is from the Calla Lilies stamp set.
Here's a photo of the eclipse taken by my dear hubby Scott Sunday night. We had an awesome view here in Phoenix!
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Pals Paper Arts challenge:

I love how you colored in your Zinnia's, Mona! It looks so antiqued and pretty! I do love how you added lace and the sentiment at the top of the card instead of the bottom, that's ingenious :)
