Zendala challenge 41...a pretty flower

Immediately upon seeing the shape of this one, I knew I would be leaning towards flowery designs.  I actually did the leaves first, with a new design from just a couple days ago,  Of course you may not recognize it because I did only one line of it right down the middle of the leaf.

 I had fun coloring this one using every pen and pencil type I owned.  Micros, gel pens, prismacolor pencils, even Staedtler pen for the tiny yellow dots on the outside edge.  I don't have every color in any type of pen, so I poked through all of them to get the colors I wanted.

I actually stayed within the lines all the way through and only added a tiny extra on the edge.  For me this is unusual.  But the shape was a good one right from the get-go.
