pink vinca

A pretty little vinca bloom from my mom's yard~


The colors are just so pretty and work so well together. So much so that I was finally motivated to figure out how to use the coffeeshop blog colorbar templates and this is the result. How fun is that?!


I used three of Kim Klassen's textures on this one.


I even remembered to save my recipe this time so here are the details~


The day I took the flower pic was a special day. It was my mom's 69th birthday so of course I took some photos of her too. I thought she looked so pretty in her pink.

  16. That's so pretty Deb with the 3 textures. I especially like the little bit of scripted texture seeping through the petals.

    Please let your mum know that she looks wonderful for 69.
