Seize the Birthday ~ stripes

Don't you just love fuchsias hanging from baskets during the summer months?
I love this Avery Elle big fuchsia blossom and because the challenge topping over at Seize the Birthday this time is "STRIPES", I decided to use an SSS diagonal stripes stencil with CPD ink: sweet sixteen for my background.
I colored the flowers using copics.
Avery Elle:  Hummingbird
PTI: Noted Scalloped A2 die
PPP clear sequins
copics

Heart Hugs, friends!
