A Photo Card - Zinnia's

I took a break from quilting to do a card using one of my photos. I like the way it came out.

I used a wood stamp by A Muse called "marigold". The inks: Green "bamboo leaves" by Memento and two new colors in my collection are "Pale Tomato"(red) and "butter bar" (yellow), Hero Arts shadow Inks.  The leaf and sentiment stamp are part of the "meadow greens" clear stamp set by Papertrey Ink.

The first few days of October have been just beautiful.  We are having cool mornings with a nice afternoon warm up.  We are expected to get some "Santa Ana" winds. This may be a problem for my zinnias and of course the areas along the hills.  We have a lot of dry brush this time of year.

The zinnias are still doing a beautiful job. My garden has never looked so good.

Thank you for those who have left me comments on my blog.  All of you are so sweet and I'm alway happy to share my garden.  Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

Hello Bobbie Lynn,

Your imagination just shines through in your card making. Adding your own photo is wonderful. Love the sentiments on the front also.

Happy days in your garden.
