  1. You can never go wrong with poinsettias, and this image you've colored so well is GORGEOUS!

  2. Wonderful watercoloring on that poinsettia, Sue! Love the tiny pearls in the center! Such a pretty card!

  3. Wow, Sue, this is a great coloring treatment for the poinsettias!! They remind me of tiger lilies ... hmmm, not sure that is the name. Now I'll have to go Google it, coz I'm curious ...
