Little girl feeding a hummingbird friend - a thank you card

Little girl feeding a hummingbird friend

This year I have ONE new year resolution: using all my left overs, before
purchasing any new...  (It has lasted upto now, at least).

Anyway, I wanted to do some colouring now, and I chose this sweet image,
made by Maurie Manning; little girl feeding a hummingbird friend.

I am entering this card with Mos digital challenge - no 67 (or Bronte
and Bella's challenge) , being a colour challenge -
 red, yellow, orange (and neutral's).

This time, I also challenged myself; no use of flowers in the front of this card -
something I found very difficult, to say the least...

The buttons were found in our local flee market, some time ago. The ribbon,
I received in the advent calendar from sweet Maria Therese.

I have used three variations of yellow, orange and red's, (ProMarkers, of coz),
in addition to the grass, flower and the hummingbird.

I am never completely satisfied with my colouring, as I can always
find some faults, but at least I managed to get a shadow effect in
this sweet little girls pants (and that's not always too easy, considering
red is a .. somewhat demanding colour to use).

Here is the inside of the card, quite bright and cheerful :-)
This sentiment - I found on the internet. On the right hand side
I have made space for a personal greeting.

The backside of the card. As already advised; the papers are all leftovers,
thus I did not have sufficient DP of one kind to copy all four sides..

With this card I am wishing you all a fabulous new week !

Thanks for visiting :-)
