Now for the set today called Hollyhocks! Here is a little snippet of what the set looks like.

This was a clipboard and bookmark gift that I made for Sharon at Flourishes. She is such an asset and help to Flourishes that I want to say thank you and give her a birthday smile. Sharon recieved this in person from me at CHA last month and a few hugs to go with it. hee hee These Hollyhocks were masked to create a huge flower garden at the bottom of the panel. A few buttons from the Basic Grey Olivia collection and some ribbon and silver cord to finish this gift off.

Now for the beautiful creations from the Design Team:
