This large floral image is from one of SU’s new hostess sets.  It was so fun to color.  The box around the flower was drawn using a plain old ball point pen!  A square punch was used to punch the two points on the end of the sentiment strip.  (Check HERE for a picture of this.)


Jazzed up the flower centers with a gold marker and accented them further with a white gel pen for a little pop.
