Colour Create 36 and Quixotic Paperie 9

I combined the challenge at Colour Create which requires the colours kraft, white and blue, with the fabulous sketch over at Quixotic Paperie to make a fourth Valentine for my hubby. He will be away skiing at the time. I used the closest card I had to kraft and some papers from my stash.  The polkadots on the paper have been coloured with a Promarker to better match the "kraft".    This lovely image is one my mum drew for me from a Christmas tree ornament I own.  I think she did a brilliant job and I coloured it in with my Copics and added some Stickles for sparkle.

Wowee! That image is absolutely fantastic and you've coloured it brilliantly!
My goodness, you must have the patience of a saint to colour all those polkadots. A fab card.
Thank you so much for joining us at the Colour Create Challenge,
