Helen, this is a beaut. Such a sweet image. I didn't think I was going to like this colour combination until I saw your card. It's lovely and I love what you've done with the sketch. I'm learning a lot about colouring with the markers from your combos; hope you don't mind. I'm going to have a shot; you've inspired me!
