Hello flowers


I don't like flowers, said no girl EVER!
We all love a little bouquet now and then don't we?  Even on a card?  Here's one for YOU!
Smooshing with distress inks and metallic gold spray.  Stamped over, then flowers and leaves gently coloured with the residual inks.  When dry highlighted with white gel pen.
