This is stunning Yvonne. The lilies are colored so beautiful, and I love how you've laid them out...but I just LOVE the ribbon and pearls with the border behind....really sets off the design!

Yvonne, I have said this before, but you are one of my coloring/painting "idols"!! Your eye for color, detail and realism is astounding and it shows in this card! Your Lillies are spectacular and so gorgeous!!! I love how simple you kept the card but made it so elegant with all of your detailed touches :)

If you ever teach an online coloring class I would love to know so I can join in and take it! :)
