Hollyhock Bittybloom

Well, back to work I go today but I took friday off so have another 4 day weekend coming up! woohoo. 

While I was off I colored up Hollyhock Bittybloom. Now wasn't all that sure what color hollyhocks were, so googled and to my surprise they come in a variety of colors. 
I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and colored her using my Caran d'Ache pencils and blended out with gamsol. I started out with a nice soft yellow dress, but as I kept adding color to shade with, it turned out to be more of an orangey tone rather than just soft yellow, but I love how it turned out. I sponged some versamagic sea breeze ink around the image.  DP I'm using is from Memory Box - paper is so pretty almost hated to use it!
Finished up the card with some pretty pink satin ribbon and lots of glitter!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon....
