Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Day 2



My first sample uses the beautiful Pink Freeze Sparkle Finish paper and pink satin ribbon. I colored the pansies in Copic markers.
The second uses Dark Chocolate and Morning Sun cardstock with the bees stamped as a background. I added a bit of sparkle to their wings.
This is a fabulous, versatile set for year round use and all occasions.
