Hi Marilyn - fabulous card with (as always!) perfect colouring. Love the hint of pink in her hair.

Hope you are having a good weekend,


PS - Love the previous card as well, and I'm forever colouring up an image and then realising that I've coloured it wrong in some way!!!

PPS - Feel free to pin away with my ADU card.

What a striking card! The image works beautifully with the mono background and your paper flowers are a great way to mirror the flowers in the image. Hugs, Tracey x
