This card is one of several variations using my Pan Pastel colored iris. I don't (can't) paint pictures, but the Pan Pastels make this kind of light shading very achievable. As noted in other photos, I used a simple iris die, cut out green ones and solid color ones. Then I pasted the heads and buds removed from the colored flowers on the green stem and used Pan Pastels to color them. These are very happy cards.
