Do you think there's enough orange on my card?

It's going to be a very short post - my laptop was finally taken away for repairs and I'm utterly computerless.

This week at Tickled Pink challenge our challenge is to create something for lads. The prize is 3 digital stamps of your choice and the challenge requires a use of Tickled Pink image.

I used Sir Rupert for my card, he is coloured with the toddler-grade watercolours I dug out from my kids craft box.
I went for fairly mad colour combo - don't think I've ever done orange/navy before and maybe for reason, lol

Love the card, Annika... what a great image!
It never fails to amaze me what such a big whole there is when the internet or the computer/laptop is taken away from us these days.

Your colouring just amazes me, Annika - what a perfect scene. I love the sentiment, might just have to remember that for retirement cards!!! And the colour combo is great - lovely and bright! (That's an understatement!)

Loving your card, the colouring you've done is amazing. Am also loving the sentiment you've used, wish I'd seen that one before as I've had 2 retirements recently and that sentiment would have been perfect.
