I was having a difficult time crafting today. The colors for today were starfruit, tangerine, plum, and pool party. I started out trying to do an imitation of the picture Betty gave us. What I was doing didn't work so I tried something else. I couldn't even think of a name for my card so simply named it "flower". It sort of looks unfinished, but I didn't want to take the chance of messing this one up too. Anyway, thanks for looking!! :>)

Oh, I dont think it looks unfinished at all! I LOVE your very pretty flower and by not using the tangerine, your color palette seems soothing. I also like that the petals are reminiscent of honey bees : ) And that your swiss dotted background, the aqua is the sky and the starfruit is the grass that has gone dormant for the end of fall. REALLY lovely card Kim!!!

I LOVE your card Kim! Your flower looks like it was once real and pressed before attaching it your card. Wonderful, wonderful coloring!
