Stop and smell the flowers, STV17MON13, MIUM

For Sheri's challenge "Lets get inspired".
I mostly was inspired by the flowers and color. I used Melanie's set "Stately Flowers 4. I recently got the zig clean color watercolor markers and decided to give it a try, a bit of a learning curve. I'm so used to using copic's and pencils.

Wow all I can say :) Geri.  Your azaleas are just breath taking and the stamens of the flowers appear so life like.  Your colouring and blending is just amazing, I really hope one day I will be achieve the same results when colouring.  I really like how you have partial embossed your card and the gorgeous black gingham ribbon really is eye catching.  Perfect card :)  I have placed Zig markers on my birthday wish list, so am hoping the very kind man of the house will get them for me :)

Oh my , this is gorgeous, Geri. It seems we had the same idea. Your flowers are colored so beautifully, as always!!!

Well, Geri, I would have to say that you have mastered the Zigs on your first go!! Stunning card. Your flowers are amazing!

Your flowers are gorgeous.  I just got a small set of the zigs and they arrived yesterday.  I think I like copics better but who knows.

WOW! Your coloring is awesome. Great layout too. Love the gingham ribbon.

If this is your first time using the zigs then I wonder how badly you would do anything. Those flowers are stunning and look real to me. Love the entire card Geri.
