Garden Zinnias

Good Monday Morning!
On the Dies R Us Blog today!
Today's creation uses many beautiful dies.  Check out the Dies R Us Store for all your die-crafting needs!
I saw this fantastic sentiment online, Little Darlings Friends Sentiments and knew I could use it with all of my lovely dies!  They fit together perfectly!  I started with my sloping grass hills, created with Die-Namics Snow Drifts.  Who says they are only for winter use? 
Then came the forest backdrop.  The Birch Trio by Memory Box  topped with some beautiful leaves by Paper Smooches, Foliage 1.  I have only thought of bare Birch Trees, I think the bark is their beauty.  But, of course, they have leaves!
The Amy Design Picket Fence was just what I wanted to fence in my pretty little garden.  This particular die is no longer available in the Dies R Us Store, however there are many others available HERE!  Pretty dies come and go so quickly, when you see what you like, fill your cart!

Now for some creative FUN....the flowers!
I adore these beautiful blossoms AND they were just a lot of fun to make!
Garden Notes Zinnia by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Their detail is amazing!  My Zinnias are not in bloom as yet, but I am hoping they look as pretty as these when they do flower!

When there is no sunshine and rain is falling at least I know I can always paper.....isn't that the best?
I will be entering this into the Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

    2. Well look at you go! This is awesome! I love gardening of any type and I'm truly inspired by your 'paper gardening'! How clever to use the 'snow drifts' as sloping grassy hills! I just love drawing inspiration from this talented team! HAVE A FABULOUS MEMORIAL DAY!! Hugs from Ohio!

    3. What a fun many elements to use. I love how you have used the fence to go with the greeting, great idea. Also love the gorgeous color you used for the flowers, PERFECTION!!! I think the yellow centers take the day with this one. STUNNING!!!!
