A bright and cheerful Thank you card

I made it in to work today but came home earlier than usual as it started snowing and I didn't want to get caught out and stuck on any roads for hours. This gave me some time to play with some of my Christmas presents. I received some gorgeous Magnolia goodies from my Friend PetraB and I hadn't inked them up yet so today I finally had a good play with them.
I decided to make a Thank you card as I need to send out a few to Thank family and Friends for my Christmas pressies.

I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday for the card and used DCWV Citrus stack papers and textured card. I coloured the image with Promarkers and added Sakura pen accents to the hat and Butterflies. I then added Glossy accents to the shoes and Butterflies. Red shoes HAVE to be shiny!
The paper ribbon was part of my Papercellar prize and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

Here is a close up of the image. I am still practising my colouring and shading it is not perfect yet but I think I am getting better.
I am entering this card in this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge and also into the Lili of the Valley Challenge for which you have to make a Thank you card.
I am hoping to have lots more time for Crafting this weekend. We have nothing planned except trying to keep warm and the weekly food shop to stock up before more snow hits us.

  4. It's gorgeous Jane, I love the colourfulness..is that even a word? But you know waht I mean..those litle red corners are lovely - how do you do that? I think your coluring is wonderful, and I couldn't agree more about red shoes needing to be shiny!
