I am sharing once again a flower from my coloring calendar images, this time I colored with pencils.

I added a bit of shimmer to it with some washi tape at the top. I really like the way the flower pops from the dark green background. I added some crystal drops to the background also.

Nuvo Crystal drops - pale gold

I am also sharing more pictures from our Minnesota trip we took in the beginning of July, I may just get through them by the end of the year, LOL!

I am not sure what these falls were called, but boy did they have some really cool trees around them, and if you have followed me long enough you know I like my weird trees.

My hubby takes some time when he was taking pictures of the falls and this little guy was quite entertaining while I waited :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today, hope your week is going well,

You're right - that dark green background does make your gorgeous flower "pop!" Such a beautiful card!

That's a gorgeous flower and you really colored it beautifully! The dark green background is a gorgeous contrast, and the Nuvo pearls perfectly placed. Love seeing more of your pics! Awesome twisty bark and exposed roots. You can see how much higher the water gets at times. The falls are beautiful! Bet they were noisy, too.
