Garden Zinnias

Good Monday Morning!
Donna Phelan back again to share my garden view.
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 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?
Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Oh Donna, how joyful and springy!! Those zinnias are so pretty and will probably end up in my cart next time I'm shopping. I do love the EC flowers!! Happy paper gardening my friend!

    2. Your card is gorgeous Donna! Love those flowers and the dies are fabulous! Have a Blessed day!

    3. Love your garden, Donna. Such a great scene card.

    4. Oh my this is gorgeous, love the flowers, may have to go on my wish list :) love putting leaves with the birch tree, and the great sentiment you found to go with the fence!!

    5. Your card looks so real, it's amazing! I love the flowers, fantastic detail.

    6. I have been to your blog 4 or 5 times to leave a comment, and something always comes up, so I'm definitely sitting this out to say HOW GORGEOUS! I love everything about your pretty creation, and especially, that you've made an entire scene that melts my heart. What a gift you have! For some reason, I just cannot do that - but you, oh special other one, seem to just know how to put things together to make one masterpiece after another! Wish I was your neighbor!

      My remission has decided to go away. So everything is a bit tiring and tedious, and difficult, but I'm still better than I was last year at this time! So there is always a silver lining, knowing that things could be so much worse. My 2 upcoming cards are dreadfully simple, but adequate I suppose LOL But nothing compared to yours!

      Thank you for the inspiration. One last comment - how EVER did you adhere those tiny little yellow stars on the stamens! Perfect touch! LOL


      1. Be well my dear! I used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue (Multi.) Little green bottle.
