Flowery Thanks for Photo-Synthesis with Tiffany Doodles

Looking for the ScrapbookPal Blog Hop??  CLICK HERE

The new photo challenge is up at the Photo-Synthesis Challenge blog.  This is challenge #2 (click to see the inspiration photo) and here is the card I created with it.  I used the Zinnia Petals image from Tiffany Doodles for the flowers.  Tiffany Doodles is our sponsor for this challenge and you could win some of her fabulous images if you play along.  Tiffany is also having a fun flower challenge to win some more digis from her on the Tiffany Doodles blog.
Cardstock, marker, word window punch, ribbon: Stampin' Up!
Zinnia Petals image: Tiffany Doodles
Butterfly punches: Martha Stewart
Die-cut leaves and vine: Cricut
Other: Micro-beads, brad, gel pen

For my card, I printed out the Zinnia Petals image on purple cardstock and then shaded in the areas with the same color of marker.  For the center of the Zinnia, I glued some micro-beads to add a little dimension and sparkle.  I also punched out the butterflies in the same color of cardstock as the flower and shaded them as well.  I used the gel pen to color in the body and antennae of the butterflies, the doodling on the leaves and vine, and to doodle stitch around the edges.  I pulled it all together with some yummy ribbon and bow.

Thanks for stopping by!!  I hope you will join us in this fun challenge on the Photo-Synthesis Challenge blog.
