 I love to sit down and just get lost in coloring. I did just that with these Hollyhocks from Flourishes. I googled Hollyhocks first... to check what color I should make them and found that they can be just about any color of the rainbow!
 Here are the Copic Markers I used to color the flowers. Adding a simple mat with salmon colored card stock.
After I assembled the card I added Glossy Accents to all the flowers. With all the swirly black pearls on the card, I wanted to make sure that the flowers still stood out as the main image.  I used the Bow Easy to make a black bow from seam binding ribbon. The sentiment is popped up with foam tape.
