Oh my goodness, did I have fun with these new florals!  I love florals and these are fabulous!  I played with the coneflowers and overlapped them a bit.  Coloring them was super fun and easy.  It's hard to see but I added a touch of sparkle to the petals to make my heart happy!
I'm not really an "orange" girl but when I was designing this card the color jumped out at me.  I used one of my favorite techniques as well, emboss resist.  I think this gorgeous line art rose is perfect for the technique.  I'll bet we see some amazing watercolor with this image too!
