Carnation, Thoughts of you

Here's a card I did with a Fred She Said image called Carnation with sentiments There are four different sentiments with this set so it is very versatile. I colored two other carnations from this set, but didn't get cards made with them yet. I'm still moving at a snails pace since my surgery & now all the Lublin Days planning is in full swing, so i have about two spare minutes each day to play. :-)
When I colored this image, I started out to try & get a Peppermint carnation and just couldn't get it right. It looked so funny without any shading so I ended up filling in the white areas with some double & triple ott reds. Not exactly what I was going for, but it is what it is. My neighbor thought it was pretty, so I guess that is all that counts. I, for one am still debating and not so sure I would try this color again. The other two I colored are just beautiful I think. Here's a picture of the other two, and maybe, just maybe, I'll get to make cards with them in the near future.
Excuse the photo, I was in a hurry & I'm a tad shaky, but you can get the jist of it anyway.
