a card for Lucy's and Caardvarks challenge

This is my entry for the pale pink, aqua and kraft color challenge that the talented Lucy is hosting. I love these colors together and they are one of Lucy's signature color combinations, too! I am also entering this to the "Color It" challenge at Caardvarks.

I used a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Hoppin Happy. I love this delightful image so much! I think the reason that I love this image is that I am a person that doesn't show emotion like that easily. A lot of times though, this image reflects how happy or excited I really am. =)

This is the first time that I used a stronger shadow on the image that I colored... Think it looks weird?

That's it for today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Aw...this is super duper cute and sweet, Alice! I love the shadowing, it's wonderful!

I love the image so much too, reminds me how I was before I had kids! After I have my kids I always think I should be cool in front of them, but I think it's okay to show my excitement in front of them more now! :) Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs!!
