Here's one of the two versions of the newest Instant Garden digital release, and I chose the one without the bowl. I added the sentiment from Rose and Chamomile, since this is going to a dear mom whose 3-year-old daughter is on a difficult and long journey with MDS.
I really enjoyed coloring this bouquet, although it was a challenge to find the right colors that seemed to work for me and make it look cohesive. I went the CAS way again with a simple mat. I'm late posting this card, because I wasn't feeling well for a while. But thanks so much for taking a closer look, and I hope you like it.
Thanks again for the prayers and encouragement for me and DH. He's doing well and is doing a bit more PT and is scheduled for the other knee two weeks from today. Needless to say, we are hustling to get ready (having learned a lot from the first surgery/recovery). Hugs and love to you all, sweet friends! xoxo
Cheryl, this is exquisite. Your shading behind the flowers is so well done it looks as though the flowers are popped up! So sorry for the illness. I will be praying that this second knee will go easier. Love and hugs.

Dearest Cheryl, I so love to see your cards pop up in the gallery. This is stunning with such beautiful colours. I love to study your work and take much inspiration from you when I use my copics. Sending hugs to you, and love.

I was so excited to see a new card that you posted Cheryl, and was not disappointed with its stunning beauty from your amazing coloring! I'm so sorry for your friend and her daughter, she could surely use the uplift of your wonderful card. Prayers for both you and Walt, stay strong sweet friend! Lots of love to you both!
