Hoping you are all well - I have just turned another year older, but hey ho! 😊
I love the way this card came out...
I made it for the Colour Crazy Challenge
with our sponsor this time : Ching Chou Kuik.
This image was a darling to colour - it's called "Misty Allure Hummingbird."

 I was so pleased with the hummingbird, that I took a closer picture of the bird.
I coloured this image using my alcohol promarkers
and white sakura pen for all the white patterned parts.
I used some liquid pearls here n there and a punched butterfly, from Martha Stewart.
I didn't want to detract from the image so made a simple dotty embossed background
with a few embossed lines on the right. 
It has no sentiment yet - I'm not 100% sure it needs one!

A pretty posy

At patties Creations this month, 
the challenge, as always now, is "anything goes."

 I have used the image called "lavender posy."
It was a little fiddly to colour with my promarkers, but worth the time, I think.
I think I used 5 different shades of purple on this posy! 
I have highlighted them subtley with a wink-of-stella, and have glossy accented a few of the stems.
I embossed a line around the image, inked the edges,
matted it onto darker purple and onto a spotty strip.
The sentiment was stamped, matted and inked, too.
Tiny little Martha Stewart punched butterflies finished this card.
