Canvas Cards

I'm afraid things here in the fifth wheel have been a little busy.  Guess it is that "time of year".  Any....who.....I ran across these nifty canvas greeting cards and decided to take a break from the "truck-n-hare" painting and do a little noodling around on a card.  Here is the result.....
I have no idea what these are called...some kind of a cactus flower.  I enjoyed painting them...a little looser style than my usual painting style.  The blank cards are from Strathmore and are 5" by 7" .  They come with matching envelopes which have a very nice deckled edge....very classy!  Pack of 10 for $6.59 at Hobby Lobby.  I painted this in my usual acrylics and then sealed the surface with waterbased satin varnish.  Put it in the mail today.....hope it makes the recipient smile......

What a beautiful card. I do counted cross-stitch cards.
