    This is totally fabulous. I adore this card. The colors are eyecatching and are wonderful together! This image is so cute and you’ve colored her beautifully. The flowers and ribbons are so perfect on this card, too. What amazes me is how you colored her hair…it’s beautiful. I’m going to study this a bit to improve my hair coloring. This is absolutely wonderfully done with her braids. They look so darn real! Awesome card! Hugs, Gail
