From the Garden...and a RAK!

I just got this new set from SU! I colored the image in with my Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol. I added rhinestones to the center and glitter to the petals. I cut the petals out a bit with an Xacto knife. I wanted them to pop up a bit. I mounted the image and added some vintage lace around it. I can't decide if I am crazy about how this turned out.......What do ya think?
Isn't this card adorable? I bought a few Magnolia stamps from Sophia Landry and she sent this in the package. She is a master at coloring images and a sweetheart! They all have such depth! Thanks so much Sophia!

This is incredible. The lace around the edge really suits the flower and you did an amazing job with the colouring....
Haven't been to your blog before, and am glad to finally find a blogger from Chicago...I used to live in Park Forest, many many years ago before returning to Canada.
