I especially love the small buds that I made two of them. The textures on the flowers are amazing! Also, this set comes with two layering hello dies!

 I  made my own color paper by misting the ink spray onto watercolor paper. The soft colors are purposely selected and they worked out beautifully.

Does this remind you of a zinnia? It does me with all those petals, buds and dimension. Your rendering looks like those I've grown here in exactly that color. It looks magnificent the way you used it with the Reflections die and Virginia touches.
