Color my world

Adult coloring books are SO popular these days, but I can't see coloring a full page and then not being able to do anything with it.  So, I  decided to buy a Sherri Baldy "zen" image of which I was able to design a card.  Let me say that it's a necessity to have lots of colored pencils on hand, and nicely sharpened points on them - not to mention, lots of time!  I did get to use some "new stuff" on this creation --- new bg papers, new image, and new butterflies (found on Amazon). This was out of my usual comfort zone, but I think in the end, it turned out well and I'll have a hard time parting with it.
