More Creative Coloring

Hi there!

In day 8 of Clean and Simple 3 we were given more inspiration for creative coloring. I absolutely loved Donna's beautiful card! She took a few Copic Markers and drew some soft, pretty flowers! Here's my take:


 I need more practice doing this, especially on my leaves, but it was so fun trying! 

Both sentiments are from Simon Says Stamp. "Thankful" is from their Thanks set and "for your kindness" is from their Thinking of You set.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope your week is going well and you're finding some time to be creative! ♥
