OMGosh, Karen--those vibrant flowers are absolutely gorgeous! They look like they took quite a bit of work to create, but they are definitely worth every ounce of creativity, time, work and patience involved. This is a true piece of art and something to treasure for years to come. I hope that one day I can develop the advanced level in the techniques you used to create such a reaction when people, namely crafters, see some of the flowers I make.
