Simply Zinnia for Freshly Made Sketches 628

After nearly two weeks away from home, it almost felt strange to sit down at my craft desk again. I was looking for some inspiration to get me back in the game and it came in the form of the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

So I started simply with the gorgeous triple bloom image from Simply Zinnia and went from there.

After colouring the image with Stampin' Blends, I die cut it and popped it up on dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped, cut into pieces then fussy cut to give three lines of text. 

The final touch was adding some of the adhesive backed sequins for a bit of bling. And I just can't not mention the beautiful Zinnia embossing folder that's equally lovely on both sides.
