Wow!! Amazing coloring Traci!! I know I sound like a broken record...but your coloring is so flawless. I love how you framed it in the white and added the red accents. It really frames this work of art perfectly!

Your "drink me" Elaine Cox card with all the black and white polka dot matting inspired a project and idea for my class. When I finally get caught up, I'll get it on my blog. ;o)
