A very different colour scheme for me today. I do love using peach but don't often make such a citrus card but I have to say I am pleased with how it turned out. It's good to try out different colour combos don't you think? Really enjoyed colouring her hair, isn't it fabulous, would be rather hot though in this weather.

Image - Sugar Nellie Mia
Medium - Copics
Papers - First Edition Blank Canvas
Die - Joy lamppost
Other - Sentiment from craft show, pearls from The Hobby House, DI Spiced marmalade

Joanna Sheen Citrus colours
