Simply Zinnia

Our theme this month for the Let’s Craft Together Blog Hop is a ‘Colour Challenge’ by Monique Fielder and I am using the Simply Zinnia Bundle by Stampin’ Up!®. This stunning suite will be available from the 5th March and will be in the Online Exclusives.

I’m not a big fan of Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry….but I love this. The colours are fantastic together with Granny Apple Green and Pretty Peacock.
