I cam down with a virus Sunday evening so am off work at the moment. Yesterday I felt so awful I couldn't even gather together the strength to make a card. I managed to colour a few images last night and am feeling a bit better today. I have a really sore throat and just feel worn out.

This is quite a bright card for me but when I saw the colour challenge of red and aqua at Whiff of Joy I thought I should give it a try. The fab sketch, which I rotated is from Secret Crafter. I added Shimmerz to her wings and she is coloured with Promarkers with a touch of Sakura gold pen. The aqua paper is Clare Curd, the red was a freebie from a mag. The fabric heart has been in my stash for so long I have no idea where I bought them and the flat backed pearl hearts are from Quixotic. I couldn't find the right coloured card for the backing of the image and text so used white and coloured it with a cool aqua Promarker.
