Encouragement Card Using CTMH Whimsy Paper Fundamentals and Conie Fong "Moonflower Lullaby"

Hello friends.  How are you doing?  It is over 100 degrees this past few days; and supposed to get to 104 and 105 in the next two days.  It is really hot.  I am ready for fall. 

I have had this image ready to color for several weeks now; and finally found time to get it done.  I am using Conie Fong "Moonflower Lullaby"; which is one of my favorites.  I love the hair on her lady images.  It is so much fun to color. I am not sure why my blusher shows up so dark; when it is a lot lighter on the card.
