Did I Mention I Like Hollyhocks? :)

While I'm still on this Hollyhock kick, I decided to show you another card I made, this time with the FREE Hollyhock digi from over at McMahon 5 Designs. I will have several versions of this same image to show you in the coming days because when I printed it off, I did a whole sheet of them. :) And they are coming out so different with each color variation I try. It's SO much FUN to see how one image can look totally different each time I use it! As a former DT member, I'm entering this card into the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for the first time as a player this week. Hugs!
